'Already a classic in its field, Managing and Organizations' success among teachers and students reflects its comprehensiveness and accuracy. A great handbook from which to teach management' - Dr Jose Bento da Silva, University of Warwick
A realist's guide to management, the authors capture the complex life of organizations, providing not only an account of theories, but also an introduction to their practice with examples from everyday life and culture discussing the key themes and debates along the way.

This is a resource that will help navigate this world, encouraging the reader to explore not only the new, exciting and brilliant aspects, but also some dark sides as well.
The new edition includes:
Suitable for students studying Organisational Behaviour, Managing People in Organisations and Introductory Management courses taking an Organisational Behaviour slant.
