Organisational Behaviour on the Pacific Rim

Author(s): Steven Lattimore McShane

Behaviour Management

This text describes Organisational Behaviour theories and concepts in the context of emerging workplace realities in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and neighbouring Pacific Rim countries. Written for the new generation of OB instructors, the text pays special attention to the ways in which infrastructure is being replaced by knowledge; direct supervision with self-leadership; hierarchies with networks; committees with virtual teams; and the way technical competence has been matched by emotional intelligence. The text is founded in local examples and case studies to help students understand OB concepts, as well as anecdotes and stories that effectively communicate the relevance and excitement of OB. The enhanced edition includes a special 32 page insert that keeps students up-to-date with several emerging topics, such as corporate social responsibility, Schwartz?s values model, innate drives theory, procedural justice, workaholism, virtual teams, the role of emotions in decision making, the potential benefits of conflict, ethical leadership, leadership across cultures, and other topics. The special insert consists of new concepts, new cases and new self assessment exercises. As part of a complete learning package, the enhanced edition also offers: * A new Premium Online Learning Centre. * Art files from the text on CD * Access to McGraw-Hill?s innovative Press Gallery which provides lecturers and students with a daily feed of current management news from around the country. * Video clips, including 7 Australian segments, on the student CD-ROM * A new additional Student CD-ROM containing over 30 self-assessments as well as several new instruments measuring students psychological/ behavioural thinking.
