Essentials of Organizational Behavior: Bridging Science and Practice, Version 3.0 is suitable for undergraduate and MBA-level courses on organizational behavior taught in either two- or four-year colleges and universities.
Essentials is based on the same themes and approaches that make the longer Organizational Behavior: Bridging Science and Practice, Version 3.0, a market-leading textbook. This briefer book covers just the core topics in organizational behavior. It offers faculty who want to assign a more concise treatment of organizational behavior an effective way to bridge the gap between theory and practice of management with the distinct, experiential approach for which Bauer and Erdogan are known. Essentials provides the most timely and relevant vocabulary, framework, and critical thinking skills necessary to diagnose situations, ask tough questions, evaluate answers received, and act in an effective and ethical manner regardless of situational characteristics.
