We give special recognition of this scientific foundation by our subtitle - An Evidence-Based Approach. This has been the mission from the beginning of this text.
For example, whereas a few texts may have up to 40 or even 50 references for a few chapters, all the chapters of this text average more than twice that amount.
This edition continues the tradition by incorporating recent breakthrough research to provide and add to the evidence on the theories and techniques presented throughout.
Two distinguishing features that no other organizational behavior textbook can claim are the following: Instead of the typical potpourri of chapters and topics, there is now the opportunity to have a sound conceptual framework to present our now credible evidence-based body of knowledge.
We use the widely recognized, very comprehensive social cognitive theory to structure this text. We present the background and theory building of this framework in the introductory chapter and also provide a specific model Figure 1. Importantly, the logic of this conceptual framework requires two chapters not found in other texts and the rearrangement and combination of several others.
For example, in the opening organizational context part there is Chapter 4, "Reward Systems," and in the cognitive processes second part, Chapter 7, "Positive Organizational Behavior and Psychological Capital," that no other text contains.
Chapter 7 contains our most recent work on what we have termed "Positive Organizational Behavior" and "Psychological Capital" or PsyCap. Just as real-world management can no longer afford to evolve slowly, neither can the academic side of the field. With the uncertain, very turbulent environment most organizations face today, drastically new ideas, approaches, and techniques are needed both in the practice of management and in the way we study and apply the field of organizational behavior.
This text mirrors these needed changes.
Social Cognitive Conceptual Framework. The book contains 14 chapters in four major parts. Social cognitive theory explains organizational behavior in terms of both environmental, contextual events and internal cognitive factors, as well as the dynamics and outcomes of the organizational behavior itself.
Thus, Part One provides the evidence-based and organizational context for the study and application of organizational behavior. About Wordery Wordery is one of the UK's largest online booksellers.
