Organisational Behaviour: Engaging People and Organisations covers five levels of analysis: environment, individual, groups, leadership and organisation, and demonstrates how each area relates to one another. The text takes a contemporary approach to organisational behaviour – one that aims to understand, rather than control, human behaviour in organisations. It presents you with real-world workplace experiences and challenges the managerial perspective by discussing and examining issues for employees.
