The most important element in any organization is its people. By utilizing human talent effectively, all of an organization┐s other resources become much more feasibly managed. Recognizing this, the behavioral sciences have become an integral part of the field of management and the knowledge base of organizational behavior has proliferated. The forty readings collected in the Third Edition of Classics of Organizational Behavior introduce readers to outstanding contributions to the professional literature of the discipline. This insightful compilation provides broad coverage of over one hundred years of writings on all aspects of organizational behavior, including motivation; performance; interpersonal and group behavior; leadership; power; change and development; and the interaction between organizations, work processes, and people.

As an edited book of collected writings, the quality is variable by chapter. Most were... not bad. I used it heavily for my management and organization class and found the later, more practical, chapters to be more useful than the earlier, more historical chapters. Read full review
