Book Preface

Organizational Behavior, 11th Edition, brings to its readers the solid and complete content core of prior editions, an enriched and exciting “OB Skills Workbook,” and many revisions, updates, and enhancements that reflect today’s dynamic times.

Organization

The most significant change that past users will note is a rearrangement and shortening of the table of contents, as well as enhancement of online modular supplements. The book still covers the discipline in an orderly progression from individuals to groups to influence processes and leadership to organizations. But, it does so in an updated and more succinct fashion. Chapters are still written to be used out of sequence at the instructor’s prerogative and to easily fit a variety of course designs.

Content

All chapters are updated to reflect new research findings and current applications and issues. For this edition, and in response to feedback, we have also rearranged chapters and adjusted both content and titles to best reflect developments and directions in the discipline as well as the realities of today’s workplaces and career challenges. The major changes were made to strengthen the research component, expand and refocus the chapters dealing with individual behavior and performance, and more fully treat the emerging directions in leadership research and thinking. Look for these and other content changes to the 11th edition: Chapter 2 Individual Differences, Values, and Diversity; Chapter 9 Decision Making and Creativity; Chapter 11 Communication and Collaboration; Chapter 14 Leadership Challenges and Organizational Change; Chapter 15 Organizational Culture and Innovation; Chapter 17 Strategy, Technology, and Organizational Design. Note as well that Chapter 9 Decision Making and Creativity and Chapter 10 Conflict and Negotiation are now part of Part 3 on Teams and Teamwork. In addition to the text chapters, a module on Research Methods in OB has been placed online to offer easy ways to further enrich the course experience.
