Now in its Third Edition, this unique and highly esteemed text goes from strength to strength, continuing to offer:

  • seamless coverage of the essential topics of organizational behaviour
  • a realist's guide to management capturing the complex life of organizations (the paradoxical, emotional, insecure, self-confident, responsible, irresponsible) and delivers the key themes and debates in an accessible way
  • interactive, instructive (and fun) learning aids and features, both in the text and on the Companion Website
  • an attractive, easily navigable, full-colour text design
  • a guide to further reading including hand-selected journal articles, many of which are available on the Companion Website.

As well as cutting-edge content and features, the Third Edition now includes:

  • clearer, more concise exposition of all you need to know about organizations
  • expanded coverage of public-sector, informal and non-profit organizations
  • additional discussion of international cultures
  • revised case studies to cater for readers across the world at all levels of knowledge and experience
  • a revisited Companion Website with longer case studies.

Over the last seven years, more and more students and tutors have been won over by Managing and Organizations' coverage, wisdom and insight, and this new edition is a yet more essential guide to negotiating and understanding the bustling and complex life of organizations.

Praise for the Second Edition:

In the last 6 months or so I have discovered the text-book Managing & Organisations, and I have been completely amazed by it! This book has been acting as my 'go-to' guide, my conceptual map, my point of reference, and my starting point on an uncountable number of areas. It is of course understood that most textbooks are incapable of providing depth of knowledge, particularly when considering the amount needed to satisfy Ph.D. criteria. However, this text is an exception. But the greatest remark I can make of it is that it is such fun to read. I have actually found myself immersed in topics that otherwise are of no concern to my current research

Such an easy book to use. Clearly divided up into sections that are covered at a basic introductory level. Provision of additional references and resources at the end of each chapter. I've been teaching management for 15 years using other textbooks. Wish I had come across this earlier!

This is a good book for a basic master-level course on management and I will likely use it is a core text in the next run of the course.

This was a very good book to use.

A very accessible volume and students are enjoying the additional support to learning/comprehension throughout the book. Hoping to use the PPT slides once I get access to the resources!

A refreshing approach to such broad topics that avoids the conventional approach and leaves the reader wanting more.

An excellent text that provides post-graduate students with a comprehensive treatment of an increasingly important and complex subject.

Mr John Lamont

This book is fantastic to run along side the Unit as essential reading. The case studies in chapters 8 and 9 specifically will be used in the class of "Managing Communications, Knowledge and Information". This is one of the most complete books that I have ever read in terms of Business HNDs and is one that I will be championing to students to accompany a number of the units.
