About the Author

David A. Buchananis Professor of Organizational Behaviour at Cranfield University, and Andrzej A. Huczynski is Senior Lecturer in Organizational Behaviour at the University of Glasgow.

From ‘glass ceilings’ to ‘glass cliffs’, ‘redisorganizational strategies’ to ‘spaghetti structures’, integrity testing to learning as ‘the new sex’. The latest edition of this leading text unravels the language, questions, and complexities of individual, group and organizational behaviour.

 

Huczynski and Buchanan bring their well-known and successful brand of critical thinking, social science underpinning, and visual appraisal to bear in this comprehensive introduction to organizational behaviour. A wide range of features enable you to understand the dynamics of human behaviour at work, and encourage regular reflection on the theory and context of contemporary organizational life.

 

Among many other questions, the authors ask:

 

Can the relationship between L’Oreal and Bodyshop work?

Is corporate social responsibility a strategic imperative or merely a waste of time and money?

Why doesn’t innovation spread, and how can organizations become more creative?

Why do people take the blame, and not the situation?

What can we learn about organizational structure from Harry Potter and Hogwart’s?

 

Organizational Behaviour involves the reader directly, placing you in the position of decision-making and problem-solving manager, inviting you to see the reality behind an organizational image, and encouraging you to make comparisons with well-known scenes in film and literature.
