en Limba Engleză Paperback – 03 Jan 2013

With special focus on intercultural and cross cultural perspectives, this collection seeks to bridge the gap between organizational behavior and HRM that are often treated separately. Ideal for students of OB, HRM and Business, Organizational Behaviour covers topics such as: performance management, motivation, leadership, talent management, politics and conflict, change management, diversity and creativity.

Through a critical analysis of existing literature and case studies, the contributors examine the role of corporate governance in shaping the scope of managerial choices within organizations and the ethical dimensions of organizational behavior and global employment standards. Grounded in observable experience, Organizational Behaviour allows students to get beyond the abstract to understand OB in practice.
