Organizational Behavior: Bridging Science and Practice bridges the gap between theory and practice of management with a distinct “experiential” approach. This textbook provides students with the vocabulary, framework, and critical thinking skills necessary to diagnose situations, ask tough questions, evaluate answers received, and to act in an effective and ethical manner regardless of situational characteristics.
