|Key features|| |
Luthans uses Meta-Analysis to highlight important research.
Experiential exercises at the end of each chapter get students involved in solving organizational behavior issues.
"Real Cases" at the end of each chapter drawn from recent events enhance the relevancy and application of the theories and research results.
Comprehensive coverage of current topics makes this one of the most up to date textbooks available.
The boxed feature, “View of Real-World Leaders”, will excerpt relevant information from mostly published high profile interviews that will complement and reinforce the more theoretical, research based text discussion. An example: the leader of Cisco discussing communicating with employees.
“Gallup Findings”-This boxed feature will briefly summarize relevant findings from Gallup’s extensive studies of the workplace and cover how organizational behavior lends itself to be implemented. Gallup is a consulting firm that handles, among others, 25 of the top 50 Fortune Companies, including IBM and Disney.
