This eagerly awaited introductory textbook provides a fresh approach to the study of Organizational Behaviour and management. Seeking to make the subject matter more relevant and accessible, it treats Organizational Behaviour as a field of activity that has many parallels with what is experienced in everyday life. Students will find it easier to learn about organizations by appreciating how work relations and management activities are not so distant from their own everyday lives. Uniquely, this book presents two distinct and highly contrasting perspectives on Organizational Behaviour. Key elements of what is conventionally studied in the field are introduced and treated as a foil for introducing a critical, less orthodox perspective. Written with the introductory Organizational Behaviour student in mind, this exciting new text has a four-colour design and uses classic pedagogical features such as case studies, think points, discussion questions, learning objectives and linked chapter summaries in order to engage students and provide a stimulating learning – and teaching – environment.

Culture and Organizational Behaviour is a textbook for management studies that highlights the effect of the confluence of Western and Indian cultural influences. It adheres to the syllabi of the organizational behaviour courses followed in most major universities and management institutes. The book presents basic knowledge of organizational behaviour as developed in the West, adds to these the latest global research findings, and situates them in the Indian cultural perspective. It also highlights the issues that emanate from the interface of the Indian culture and organizational behaviour. Key Features: - Contains updated case studies from Indian organizations - Focuses on current and emerging strategies in organizational structures, leadership, power and politics - Covers topics like balancing work and other responsibilities, power and politics, and conflict and negotiation, which, though extremely crucial to organizational behaviour, have perhaps not got due attention in the existing literature - Presents the relatively unexplored effects of Indian culture on organizational behaviour. Provides a platform where both theoretical and practical issues can be addressed by managers, researchers, students and teachers alike.
