Product Description


"Excellent in scope, approach and appeal." -- Nevin Smith "This book is so practical and easy to understand. I have used this book for 4 years. I have changed books in other courses, but this one has worked so well I have not changed." -- Anne Swafford "Based on over 34 years in the public sector, I find the text has presented the challenges in dealing with human behavior in a very valid and useful manner." -- Larry Bustetter "The single most impressive aspect of this book is its focus on organizational behavior within the public and nonprofit sectors. Most organizational textbooks focus on the private for profit sector with an occasional reference to the public sector. This textbook makes the subject more relevant to the public administration or nonprofit management student." -- John J. Donohue "I like the book's action science approach to the topic. I teach experientially. I link this to organization learning models. So this book is a perfect format for me." -- Nancy Adams

Format: Paperback
Great book to support MPA Program. Easy to read and understand concepts. I would recommend even as a reference book.

This is one of three books in a public administration class this quarter that I plan to keep. It tries to cover a huge swath of theories and this is at the expense of a more refined discussion. However, I see this book more as a starting point for readers to learn about organizational behavior.

Required Text for class. Hardly read it unless it's mandatory. It's an okay read on master level.
