With updated examples and research but purposely minus such learning aids as review questions, this edition meets its goal of offering an alternative to much lengthier texts in the organizational behavior field. Robbins (San Diego State U.) discusses OB topics relating to ethics, diversity, and globalization throughout rather than in stand-alone chapters. The organizational culture section includes a discussion of workplace spirituality. A companion Web site and other supplements are available. Annotation c.

"The Self-Assessment Library 2.0 has been created to help you to learn more about yourself so that you might become "enlightened." It draws on numerous instruments that have been developed by behavioral researchers that tap into your skills, abilities, and interests. This new edition has eight instruments that were not included in the first version; and I deleted four from the first edition that user feedback indicated were not very effective. Additionally, in response to user comments, the interpretation sections have been expanded. They now describe underlying concepts in greater detail and provide more elaborated discussions of what results mean. Here's a summary of changes you'll find in this second edition: - Four tests have been deleted and eight new ones added. - A matrix for relating tests to management and OB topics has been added. - Tests which assume current working experience are now identified. - Approximate quantitative cut-off scores, when not included by the tests' authors, have been provided to help students better understand the meaning of their results. - Where appropriate, remedial actions or references have been suggested to help students improve areas of weakness. "This Library of behavioral questionnaires has been designed to supplement a wide range of college courses. These include: Introduction to Management, Organizational Behavior, Supervision, Interpersonal Skills, Introduction to Business, Careers in Business, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and Social Psychology. It works best when questionnaires are completed separately (rather than doing the whole set at one time) and when they're completed in sync with text readings on complementary topics."
