Cases in Organizational Behavior

Cases in Organizational Behavior

First Edition

September 2005 | 312 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Ivey Casebook Series is a co-publishing partnership between SAGE Publications and the Richard Ivery School of Business at The University of Western Ontario.

Cases in Organizational Behavior has been designed to develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, the various challenges, dilemmas, and constraints that decision makers face in real organizational settings. The cases are made up of actual events and include globalization, managing a diverse workforce, motivation, and leadership. Together, these cases provide students the opportunity to practice and hone analytical skills, decision making skills, application skills, planning skills, and oral communication skills.

An excellent text which provides realistic case studies to help students appreciate the complexity of any organisation.

Useful and interesting text. Not just for organisational behavior but for a broader set of business and management topic areas. The text provides a number of engaging case studies, which are useful in giving life to the relevant theory.

Although these cases were good, I did not feel they would engage undergraduates who are just learning about OB. There needs to be companies they recognize and can relate to.

Did not mesh well with the text. Cases were not well organized into sections either.
