For undergraduate courses in Human Relations, Organizational Behavior and Human Behavior in Organizations. Bringing years of both professional and teaching experience together this author team has developed one of the most highly understandable texts covering the basics of organizational behavior. Literally hundreds of students reviewed the text through-out the four editions that it was custom published. The result is a text that is concise, entertaining, and interactive and something that the students will actually read. Through self-assessments, the student is challenged to discover their own unique behavior, their preferred behavior in groups and their behavioral preference for certain organizational structures. This is accomplished by using a variety of methods including current theory, practical applications, self-assessment exercises, and case studies. The PH Self-Assessment Libary v. 3.0 is packaged with each text. .
