Students in the 21st Century will face an unprecedented rate of change in employee diversity, global competition, and legal requirements. This book is intended for those students, giving them a wealth of text, readings, exercises and cases allowing them to experience and understand organisational behaviour and its importance to them as future managers. 21st century managers must not only be able to perform the necessary functions of management, but also lead in a manner that enriches the capacity of employees who may or are likely to be moving around from work assignments, starting their own firms, and multiple organisations. Leading change, thinking ahead, executing flawlessly a plan or program, using technology, displaying passion regularly are what leaders must do smoothly and easily. The 6th edition of OBM prepares students for this enhanced role, by focusing on managing and leading a firm's most valuable assets, its people.

Milkovich and Newman? Do the other reviewer's have the right book As I right this review I have the book next to me and I can't find any reference to a Milkovich and Newman? Whoever these fine people are I can't see how they have anything to do with this textbook.

As for the textbook, I had to use it for my introductory Management class as part of my MBA program. And halfway through my MBA program this book gets the award for the dryest, boring, waste of trees. Yeach I've complained about Marketing, but this book is far worse.

Instead of explaining the intricacies of management and addressing contemporary issues in the typical office, this book focuses on stating the obvious, restating it again, without offering any arguments, any conclusions, or even giving any advice.

Consider this typical sentence, which I found by randomly opening the book. 'As previously indicated, conflict may have either positive or negative consequences for the organization, depnding upon how much exists and how it is managed.' (pg. 358).

When they aren't boring the reader with their lack of depth and insight the authors bore the reader with stupid asides on companies that add nothing. Consider the following sentence, 'The 13,000 restaurants in McDonald's network all pay attention to quality, service, and cleanliness.' (pg. 41). You mean the authors find it necessary to teach MBA students how to serve fast food? I thought that was the reason kids enroll in these programs so they don't won't end up working in a fast food joint.

This book was so bad, that some of my classmates gave up even trying to read the chapters, because they weren't getting anything out of it. And although the material is very elementary it's written with so much filler material that it is extremely hard reading. It as if the authors were paid based on how many words they were able to write, so that the book would look thinker and the publisher could justify it's outrageous list price.

And the worst part is that the material is so disorganized that some of the information in the chapter summaries isn't even covered in the chapters. I'm just glad I only had to put up with semester of this trash.

I really liked this book. If you are interested in psychology and management, this book would be a good start.
