There was many opportunites to learn and interact in quality studies that had been preformed in real life programs about organizational behavior in management.We did individual and group projects which enabled us to get a good grasp of how theories are derived and statistical information becomes assembled.read more

Organizational/management Behavior. Did a thorough job of explaining and teaching the subject.
more definitions and exercises needed so I was able to understand the work a lot better and get to the answer a lot faster.read more
looking for a definition was difficult. I was confused with dealing with the OB assessment section. Everything else seem to be okay
My only criticism is that several topics that are common to most other OB books are oddly absent, or glossed over, in this textbook. There is little content on the theory of the organization or the history of OB, careers, work identity, emotions (which are just wrapped up in the book's coverage of satisfaction), diversity, or organizational change/development. These topics may not have fit in the book's overarching model, but instructors who want to talk about these topics, like I do, will need to find supplemental readings.read more
The book opens with two chapters barely covered in other texts: job performance and organizational commitment. Those topics are critical to managers and students alike, and represent two of the most critical outcomes in OB. Each successive chapter then links that chapter������s topic back to those outcomes, illustrating why OB matters in today������s organizations.
