Prepare your students today to become strong, effective managers tomorrow with the powerful concepts and practical applications found in Griffin/Moorhead’s ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR: MANAGING PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS, Tenth Edition. This reader-oriented text helps you equip your students with the skills and solid understanding to meet the management challenges of a new century. The book’s applied approach balances classic management ideas with the most recent OB developments and contemporary trends, such as the effects of the recession; how to manage people in these challenging times; the new role of stress on motivation and leadership; and effects of downsizing.

Students delve into the core concepts of human behavior and industrial psychology within the help of memorable real examples and cases drawn from relevent organizations and managers such as Steve Jobs, Eddie Bauer, Cirque du Soleil,, Whole Foods, Nike, and Goldman Sachs. Fresh new cases, proven end-of-chapter exercises, activities, and an optional case and exercises help you equip your students with the assets, tools, and resources to compete effectively amid a world of change.

Students grasp the fundamental of human behavior in organizations and the ability to develop new answers to new challenges as they learn to understand the people who comprise an organization, understand change, and understand how organizations must respond to change.

Equip and energize the next generation of managers for the most exciting task of tomorrow: managing people effectively within competitive organizations.
