Organizational Behavior

By Mitchell J. Neubert, Bruno Dyck

Unlike any other OB textbook in the market, Organizational Behavior by Neubert/Dyck empowers students to look at OB through two “lenses”: the traditional, core concepts that focus on how to make a company profitable, as well as the collaboration, creativity, and ethical decision-making that lead to developing sustainable businesses.

By inviting students to compare and contrast short-term profitability and long-term sustainability, Neubert/Dyck’s Organizational Behavior helps students build the critical thinking skills they need to positively affect organizations, people, and communities.

Accompanying Neubert/Dyck’s Organizational Behavior is WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning. WileyPLUS now offers ORION, an adaptive learning experience that guides students as they build their proficiency on topics. Based on cognitive science, WileyPLUS with ORION helps students learn by learning about them. For instructors, WileyPLUS offers automatically graded assignments or tests and a gradebook for monitoring student progress. Available in or outside of the Blackboard Learn environment, WileyPLUSreaches all types of learners and gives instructors the tools they need to enhance course material.
