■ Description


The introductory section of Colquitt contains two chapters not found in the beginning of other books: Job Performance and Organizational Commitment. Why is this important? Being good at one’s job and wanting to stay with one’s employer are critical concerns for employees and managers alike.


This book takes a unique approach by highlighting the concepts of PEFORMANCE and COMMITMENT at the beginning of the book. After describing these topics in detail, every remaining chapter in the book concludes by linking that chapter’s major topic to performance and commitment. Using this approach, students can better appreciate the practical relevance of organizational behavior concepts.

■ Features

• NEW Connect Organizational Behavior with Interactives® is McGraw-Hill’s web-based assignment and assessment platform that connects you and your students to the coursework. Interactives provided for each chapter of the textbook allow students to “demonstrate” organizational behavior, stimulate critical thinking, and reinforce key concepts. Students receive immediate feedback and can track their progress in their own report. The following 6 types of Interactives were developed for Organizational Behavior based on actual book-specific content.


1. Case Video Pop-up Analysis: Case study videos are included, with 6 multiple-choice pop-up questions that appear as the video plays, to test concept and/or terminology comprehension.

2. Drag and Drop Sequencing Activity: To reinforce either chronological or multi-step processes, we provide a written overview of a topic from the text. The 8 items that represent each of the steps in the overall process are included, with the student asked to place them in order on the provided timeline. If applicable, a 2nd task will be to assign the appropriate ‘players’ to each task.

3. Prediction/Decision Generators: Students are presented with 2-3 concepts from the text and a written case study that illustrates the concepts presented. The students will then answer a series of questions to either predict what the company will do or reach a decision on a certain issue (the ‘evidence’ presented will be very concrete to ensure a clearly correct response).

4. Comprehension Multiple-Choice Activities: In order to reinforce comprehension of terminology within context, a case example from the text is included that illustrates key terms from the chapter. Students will then be provided with 6 multiple-choice questions that bridge the content from the case to the mastery of terminology

5. Chart Population: Students will be asked to categorize information by assigning items to specific fields within a chart. Students will then be asked to analyze the chart created with 6 multiple-choice questions.

6. Self-Assessments: Students will take assessments to determine their beliefs, values, and interests in a variety of areas. Then will then be given multiple-choice questions to assess the degree to which they understand their feedback.
