In their new Fifth Edition, McShane and Von Glinow continue the trailblazing innovations that made previous editions of Organizational Behavior recognized and adopted by the new generation of organizational behavior (OB) instructors.

McShane and Von Glinow 5e is acclaimed for: Readability, presentation of current knowledge »

Strong International/Global orientation »

Contemporary Theory Foundation (without the jargon) »

Textbook’s philosophy-OB knowledge is for everyone, not just traditional managers. »

The reality is that everyone needs OB knowledge to successfully thrive in and around organizations, from sales representatives to production employees to physicians. The authors’ ability to engage students by introducing cutting-edge OB topics while providing relevancy to OB concepts through the ‘linking theory with reality’ approach, is the reason OB 5e remains unparalleled in its ability to engage students.
