Managing Organization Deviance draws together contributions written by recognized experts and includes short cases written specifically for this volume.

Considered in this book are both micro and macro perspectives of deviance and dysfunctional behavior. Offering practical guidance to those faced with ambiguous situations of deviant behaviour in the workplace it considers cross-cultural implications and views of deviance as well as the moral implications of deviance for the organization, group and individual.
