Many students leave their OB courses asking questions like: "Does any of this stuff really matter?", "How does all this stuff fit together?", "If that theory doesn't work, why is it in the book?", and "Does this stuff have to be so dry?" Those questions will never be asked if Colquitt Essentials is used. The author team has written a text that highlights the importance of course topics while organizing them around an integrative model of OB. The text is also contemporary, omitting outdated and disproven models that remain in other texts. Most important to students, the text is written in an approachable, conversational tone, with features that students actually want to read. Colquitt Essentials is the complete package in a condensed, unique, and visually stimulating format, all without losing the integrity and level of quality we've come to expect from this author team. This text stands out from the competition for four key reasons: ● A Focus on Performance and Commitment. Being a good performer and working for an employer that inspires commitment are critical concerns for employees and managers alike. Colquitt Essentials takes a unique approach by devoting Chapter 2 to job performance and organizational commitment. Once these two key outcomes have been spotlighted, all of the remaining chapters are linked back to them, illustrating the importance of the chapter topics to performance and commitment. ● An Integrative Model of OB. The table of contents is organized around an integrative model, described in Chapter 1, that provides a roadmap for the course, showing students how all of the chapters fit together. Unlike many OB texts with many editions behind them, Colquitt Essentials avoids being "grab-baggish" in nature with what seem to be randomly placed topics. The positioning of every topic makes sense, and it's easy for students to understand how the topics they are studying fit into the bigger picture. ● Contemporary Content. When creating the book, the author team asked themselves what OB texts would look like if all of them were first written in 2008. Many OB texts include outdated and disproven models, just to maintain continuity with earlier editions. Such content frustrates students, who don’t understand why they should learn theories that are not valid. Colquitt Essentials omits such theories, devoting more space to contemporary topics that are useful for employees and managers. ● Features that Students Want to Read. Each chapter includes special insert box features like OB on Screen, OB in Sports, OB for Students, and OB Internationally that help "bring OB to life" for the reader. Many of these features have been praised by students for their ability to demonstrate OB content in a fun and appealing manner. Colquitt Essentials also uses an informal style that students enjoy reading, while focusing on company examples that students find interesting (Google, Netflix, Best Buy, Four Seasons, eBay, and others). ■ Table of Contents PART 1 Introduction to Organizational Behavior Chapter 1: Organizational Behavior: An Overview Chapter 2: Performance and Commitment PART 2 Individual Mechanisms Chapter 3: Job Satisfaction Chapter 4: Stress Chapter 5: Motivation Chapter 6: Trust, Justice, and Ethics Chapter 7: Learning and Decision Making PART 3 Individual Characteristics Chapter 8: Personality, Cultural Values, & Ability PART 4 Group Mechanisms Chapter 9: Teams Chapter 10: Leadership PART 5 Organizational Mechanisms Chapter 11: Organizational Structure Chapter 12: Organizational Culture ■ Features ● In Chapter Features: ● OB in Sports- The wide world of sports provides a variety of applications for OB. By bringing what students already know from the outside world into the classroom, OB in Sports helps demonstrate key models and theories in each chapter. Piquing students’ interest with sports not only helps to engage them, it also helps bring to light that OB is everywhere. Examples of sports examples used to illustrate OB concepts: ● Chapter 5 on Motivation: The “Tiger Effect” in golf with Tiger Woods. ● Chapter 12 on Organizational Culture: Pat Summit and the Lady Volunteers basketball team. ● OB on Screen- Throughout the text, popular movies are used to represent applicable OB concepts. While these videos are NOT available on the Instructor Video DVD, full instructor notes are provided in the Instructor’s Manual for specific scenes and where they can be located on the film’s DVD, either rented or purchased by the instructor. Examples of movies discussed to illustrate OB concepts: ● Chapter 6 on Trust, Justice, and Ethics: Pirates of the Carribean ● Chapter 9 on Teams: 300 ● OB for Students- Whether undergraduates, masters, or executives, everyone enrolled in an OB class has one thing in common: they’re students. This feature applies OB theories and concepts to student life. It examines questions like, what makes students satisfied with their University, what personality traits improve performance in students groups, and what are the effects of absenteeism on student learning and performance? ● OB Internationally- This feature spotlights the impact of globalization on the OB concepts described in the book. It describes how the importance of concepts and theories vary across cultures, how OB concepts are applied in international corporations, and how OB concepts impact the success of “expatriates”, and how cultural diversity influences group effectiveness. End of Chapter Features: ● Cases- To help bring students full circle, a case appears at the end of every chapter that provides a follow-up to the company highlighted in the Opening Vignette. ● Takeaways- Provided to help guide students to the most relevant information in each chapter. ● Discussion Questions- Help promote critical thinking on the part of the students, while also giving instructors some topics to trigger class discussion. ● Assessments- Give students insights into their personality, values, traits, skills, and styles that can help them understand their reactions to the working world. ● Exercises- Provide experiential, hands-on experience with OB concepts, so that students can “learn by doing”.
