This book provides key components of management theories, with a particular focus on organisational behaviour.

This is a high quality text, exploring every aspect of organisational behaviour and management. It includes many of the areas covered in all business/leadership and management courses, including cultural aspects of organisations, developing effective teams and managing conflict; all of which are essential components to any business course.

The text is essential for any business or leadership and management course. It has extensive detail, and is easy to read, with a clear and logical layout, this makes it suitable for level 3 or above. I would anticipate this course is particularly useful courses level 5 and above, as it provides extensive details and analysis of the core topics.

In summary, an excellent text, suitable for business courses of at all levels.

We very much appreciate the fresh approach to organizational behavior, including innovation, stressing the importance of teams, new ways of working. The book is accessible for our first year students. The practice exercises are very useful, and we intend to use them in workgroups.
