Colquitt-LePine-Wesson provides a fresh and engaging look at Organizational Behavior with a unique organization and a unique style.
From an organizational perspective, Colquitt is structured around an integrative model of organizational behavior that shows how each chapter fits together. More specifically, the model links every chapter in the book to two primary outcomes of interest to students and managers: job performance and organizational commitment. The book devotes a chapter to each of these outcomes, which are barely covered in other books, and details how the topics in all other chapters impact them.
From a styllistic perspective, Colquitt uses an informal conversational style to create a book that students enjoy reading. The wrap-around cases describe organizations that students have first hand experience with (Apple, Zappos, Enterprise, Nike, Ford). And the one-of-a-kind insert box features, like OB on Screen and OB at the Bookstore, bring course topics to life in an interesting way.
Priced at $99 Net, which is $50-$70 less than competing hardcovers, professors can feel good about adopting Colquitt, and students will feel good about buying the book.
