This textbook presents organization theory in an exciting new way, moving away from a traditional linear historical narrative approach, to present students with an approach that offers both relevancy and appeal. The authors take a practice-based approach, identifying questions, problems and issues that are perceived as pertinent by practitioners, and using these as the starting point to identify the relevant theories. This means that students will find it easier to engage with the material and more attention is paid to issues such as boundary spanning, leadership, quality management, strategic change, and development psychology/organizational learning; areas that are not always covered in other textbooks. Online Resource Centre: For students: Multiple choice questions Further Reading and Research: Comprising of web links and web link updates linking to organization and company websites, plus additional readings and articles. "What happened next": as appropriate, cases from within the textbook will continue to be updated on the Online Resource Centre. For lecturers: Test bank PowerPoint slides Seminar exercises

MEDIA REVIEWS
This material is presented very differently to existing organizational books. It starts with the "real-life", and then links and applies the various theories and concepts. This creates a very interesting read and I believe most students will find this style easy to grasp. * Bruce Mitchell, Senior Lecturer, Department of Management and Organisational Studies, Oxford Brookes University *
This new book has many strengths. The questions - especially the chapter study questions - are highly relevant and are an extremely good starting point for class discussions and group work. Brilliant! The definition boxes also make the book very useful as a "working tool". * Jeanette Lemmergaard, Associate Professor of Human Resource Management and Internal Communication, University of Southern Denmark; Part-time Associate Professor, Aarhus School of Business *
I truly like what I have read. Little jargon is used, and the authors move elegantly from theory to theory, from organizational scholar to organizational scholar. * Ad van Iterson, Associate Professor, Maastricht University, the Netherlands *
