Aimed at professors who take a research based and conceptual approach to organizational Behaviour. Luthans demonstrated why a thorough understanding and implementation of organizational Behaviour applications must be a part of a successful business' overall strategy. To reflect and reinforce the applications orientation of the text real world examples appear in each chapter. Revision includes the results of meta-analysis (a statistical pooling technique that draws general conclusions from many different studies). Revised chapters concentrate on the new workplace (chapter 1); information technology, total quality and organizational learning (chapter 2); diversity and ethics (chapter 3); and international organizational Behaviour (chapter 19).
