Organizational BehaviorBook - 2010
Two leading researchers in Management, Talya Bauer and Berrin Erdogan, bring you a new Organizational Behavior textbook that bridges the gap between theory and practice with a distinct ”experiential“ approach.On average, a worker in the U.S.A. will change jobs 10 times in 20 years. In order to succeed in this type of career situation, individuals need to be armed with the tools necessary to be life-long learners. To that end, this book is not be about giving students all the answers to every situation they may encounter when they start their first job or as they continue up the career ladder. Instead, this book gives students the vocabulary, framework and critical thinking skills necessary to diagnose situations, ask tough questions, evaluate the answers received and to act in an effective and ethical manner regardless of situational characteristics. Often, students taking O.B. either do not understand how important knowledge of O.B. can be to their professional careers, or they do understand and they want to put that knowledge into practice. Organizational Behavior by Bauer and Erdogan takes a more experiential angle to the material to meet both of those needs. The experiential approach can be incorporated in the classroom primarily through the ”O.B. Toolbox.“ This feature brings life to the concepts and allows students to not only see how the O.B. theories unfold, but to practice them, as well.
