Book Description

Jan. 8 2008 3540887628 978-3540887621 1
Colquitt, Organizational Behavior: Improving Performance and Commitment in the Workplace provides a fresh modern look at Organizational Behavior with scientifically proven models and theories.

Research on learning motivation has shown that students learn more when they have an intrinsic interest in the topic. This prompted the Colquitt team to create an OB text to using a more informal conversational style and use of company examples students will be familiar with and find compelling, thus helping to stimulate interest. Each chapter includes special features designed to “bring OB to life.” Chapters open around an integrative model that provides students with a roadmap of the course, showing them where they have been and where they are going.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The introductory section of Colquitt contains two chapters not found in the beginning of other books: Job Performance and Organizational Commitment. Why this is important? Being good at one’s job and wanting to stay with one’s employer are critical concerns for employees and managers alike. This book takes on a unique approach highlighting the concepts of PEFORMANCE and COMMITMENT at the beginning of the book. After describing these topics in detail, every remaining chapter in the book links back to the theory of performance and commitment. From this organization, students can better appreciate the practical relevance of organizational behavior concepts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and entertaining text with some sacrifices in content Dec 10 2008
By JJD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is easily the most engaging OB textbook on the market, with clear writing and lots of production value in terms of quotes, sidebar tangents, connections to books and media, diagrams, etc. It is also noteworthy because the authors structured the chapters into an overarching model that is repeatedly reinforced, which helps prevent the chapters from feeling like a series of disjointed ideas, a common problem in OB courses.

My only criticism is that several topics that are common to most other OB books are oddly absent, or glossed over, in this textbook. There is little content on the theory of the organization or the history of OB, careers, work identity, emotions (which are just wrapped up in the book's coverage of satisfaction), diversity, or organizational change/development. These topics may not have fit in the book's overarching model, but instructors who want to talk about these topics, like I do, will need to find supplmental readings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decently written textbook - no index, though April 17 2013
By Idiotfool - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Loose Leaf|Verified Purchase
The textbook is straightforward and, if you've had any sort of organizational behavior course, you won't have any surprises. The chapters give real-world examples of various topics and at the end of the chapter, there is a synopsis of the topics covered.

The biggest flaw in the book is that there is only a glossary/definition of terms section. Although these tell you the page where the definition was originally given, there are a limited number of words. Without a true index, I can't find, directly, which chapters discuss a specific item.

I'm also not a huge fan of loose-leaf textbooks, especially when they cost upwards of $100, but I need this for an MBA course and the alternative is a digital copy, which I loathe more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Read for a Textbook Feb. 5 2013
By Allison Tinney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(I will preface this by saying Colquitt is currently my professor). The good news is if you don't have the pleasure of sitting in one of his classes, his book is right on target with his lectures! Colquitt does a great job both in the classroom and in this book of making this topic more interesting and engaging (especially for the number crunching business folks out there). It's probably one of the best and easiest textbooks I've ever had to read... and actually do read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and Engaging OB Book Feb. 15 2012
By Robert Jacques - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book offers a well-written, accessible, and engaging format to learning organizational behavior -- for undergraduate and graduate students alike. While some books sacrifice clarity for density, the authors here did a great job keeping the audience in mind by relating OB principles to popular culture and to readers. Self assessments facilitate readers to apply the lessons to their past experiences, which reinforces the main point that effective OB practices lead to greater productivity and better companies.
