Abstract:
Organisational behaviour can be defined as the study of the 'structure, functioning and performance of organisations, and the behaviour of groups and individuals in those organisations'. There are two main reasons to study organisational behaviour: to investigate factors associated with the effectiveness and efficiency of organisations, and to investigate both how organisations affect the people who work in them and how workers affect organisations. This book brings together the research of 15 leading Australian and New Zealand researchers and educators to produce a research and professional practice textbook for students of organisational psychology.

Content includes: 1.The historical development of organisational theories -- 2.Assessment methods of selection -- 3.Assessing work performance -- 4.Training: needs, methods and evaluation -- 5.Management development issues -- 6.Career choice and development -- 7.Individual differences -- 8.Motivation and job design -- 9.Occupational health psychology -- Human factors: human information processing -- 11.Group and team processes in organisations -- 12.Leadership: power and influence -- 13.Organisational culture -- 14.Organisational development and change -- 15.The scientist-practioner model and professional practice -- 16.The role of the organisational psychologist -- 17.Emerging issues in organisational psychology practice.
