Product Description

From the Back Cover

The sixth edition of Europe's best selling Organisational Behaviour textbook builds on the strengths and reputation of previous editions. With its accessible writing style and comprehensive coverage and strong internal layout it has proven to be the text of choice for students of business and management. By presenting a managerial approach to organisational behaviour and demonstrating the application of behavioural science within the workplace the author emphasises the role of management as a core integrating activity. Management and Organisational Behaviour features annually in bestseller lists compiled in The Guardian, The Times, The Bookseller and Management Today.


A critical reflection feature within each chapter encourages the student to critically evaluate the key ideas and practices within management and organisational behaviour. It includes a 'debate' topic which offers a springboard for lively group and class discussion of important issues.
A page referenced glossary of key terms at the end of the book enables students to locate the information quickly.
New and updated articles from the Financial Times have been chosen to highlight the debate in the media and amongst practising managers concerning topical issues.
References to research and publications have been rigorously edited to ensure only the most relevant, important and up-to-date are included.
For students there is a first class Companion Website with multiple choice questions containing extensive feedback, annotated weblinks, suggested activities and further case studies to complement the text.
For the lecturer, an enhanced lecturer's guide with teaching notes and a range of additional case studies and seminar activities is available. PowerPoint slides, OHT masters and a bank of multiple choice questions and answers will also be available. Comments from the users of the fifth edition of Management and Organisational Behaviour- We needed a textbook written to fit into the European context and the European way of thinking. Mullins has provided us with that perfectly. The international dimension will help students in their future studies and beyond.
Jorgen Ljund, Linkoping University
The book is logically structured and clearly written, thus enabling easy access to the subject without compromising the academic integrity. The theories and concepts discussed in the text are clearly applied through interesting and relevant case studies. It is ideal for undergraduates, but I have also found it proves useful for overseas postgraduate students, for whom English is not their first language.'
Alf Crossman, Surrey European Management School, University of Surrey
'This text offers a balanced view of management theories with stimulating, but practical illustrations for a whole range of practitioners.'
Jeannie Frodsham, Lecturer in Management Studies, DMS Co-ordinator, Bury College

I found this book extremely useful whilst writing reports for my Business course. It gave me a lot of quotes and ideas for the flow of my report. It is easy to understand and goes into just enough detail. An excellent investment!

I am studying for a PEDMS and this text was recommended for the "Managing People". I have found it helpful and some of the exercices at the end of each chapter have put some of the course content in perspective.

I am a 2nd year student studying Computing with Business at the University of Kent at Canterbury. A large proportion of my business modules where covered solely by this book. I found it was able to give me a clear understanding of Organisational behaviour, being concise and to the point. It was an essential piece of reading for passing my 1st year, and I would recommend this book to anybody wanting clarification in understanding Organisational behaviour.

Format: Paperback
A good undergraduate text written from the British and European point of view. Case studies are all EU based, and it as been clearly designed with an intergrated course in mind.
The book is particularly strong in its dealings with management processes and organisational factors. It is divided into six functional parts that covers the majority of material introduced in an introductory level undergraduate course. Each section begins with set of learning objectives, and ends with a summary. The summary sections are probably its weakest point.
Tutor support material and OHPs are available, as is an accompanying student workbook, and a set of additional related case studies.
On the whole I have found its use in my own business classes to be successful. Though students tend to be a little overwhelmed by the size of the book in the initial stages of the course.
RECCOMMENDED.

Format: Paperback
I am currently studying Software Engineering at university, and as part of the course, there is a Management and Organisational Behaviour module, which required me to buy this book. However, after 2 of 4 years, I can honestly say I have used the book a total of 3 times, and two of them were in the first month of the course.
The Software Engineering course only does the management course for 2 hours a week, but for people who get told to buy this book for this course, don't bother. It's not relevant and will not help you as much as a search on Google will.
However, the book does cover almost everything you could possibly want it to, and for people doing a dedicated management course, this book is probably the best choice for you, so thats where it earned its 3 stars. It is a great book, although the information is presented in a way that some people may find difficult to digest. You have to be dedicated to the topic to get your way through it, so make sure it's exactly what you want, and what you require before buying it.

Mullins is a great writer and this brings the best of him. I'm currently studying Hospitality Management at Blackpool college (BA) in my second year, and I can't say how much the book has helped. Both in 1st year in organisational behaviour and now in second year in a number of subjects. The content is easy to understand and people who cant make sense of certain theories etc need to read this book.

Format: Paperback
The presentation of the materials has improved consistently since I started using this as a course text 3 editions ago. As a lecturer in Management, I have found this book to be the best out of the choice available as it includes a wealth of case studies for discussion and can therefore set structured reading for my students and assignments. Setting structured reading is important in my experience as it can be daunting for the student - not necessarily a book to read cover to cover (for which I select Charles Handy's UNDERSTANDING ORGANISATIONS). Another important attribute is the overlap of content with other subjects, notably HRM, making it good value to purchase.
