Learn more or contact your local McGraw-Hill Representative I am excited about the compelling revision of Organizational Behavior, 3rd edition for you and your students. My goal in writing this product was to help your students apply Organizational Behavior concepts and theories to solve problems. Why? I want your students to become career ready. Surveys consistently show that problem solving is one of the skills most valued by employers. We thus designed and developed this product with the goal of increasing students' career readiness by enhancing their ability to solve problems, thereby making them valued leaders for tomorrow. I executed on this goal by employing four key strategies: • Unique, consistent, integrated 3-Step Problem-Solving Approach. This approach lets students immediately put research-based knowledge into practice in their personal and professional lives. Introduced in Chapter 1 and revisited and applied in every chapter. Organizational Behavior 3e explicitly addresses OB implications for students' core career readiness skills, showing how OB provides them with the higher-level soft skills employers seek. • Applied, Practical Approach. The product repeatedly demonstrates the practical value of OB concepts in solving real-world problems in students' personal and professional lives. It includes hundreds of practical, real companies and real people examples, along with called out OB in Action boxes, Applying OB Boxes, Takeaways for Me, Takeaways for Managers, etc. • Student Centered Approach. The product was designed to be easy to navigate, easy to digest, and exceptionally practical. The writing is based on neuroscience research. It demonstrates that greater learning occurs when information is chunked into short blocks of text with more visual breaks and devices to keep student attention. It uses a personalized, engaging writing style and breaks topics into digestible, bite-sized chunks of information with purposeful pedagogy to make theories and concepts easier to learn and apply. • Connect ® is our highly reliable, easy-to-use homework and learning management solution that embeds learning science and award-winning adaptive tools to improve student results. Each asset in Connect is designed to address course challenges such as student preparedness, engagement, and developing higher-order critical thinking and workplace competency skills. Plus, we include a Unique Teaching Resource Manual, a playbook of teaching resources for fostering a discussion- based, experiential learning experience. A Note from the Author Thank you for allowing us to make a difference in the lives of you and your students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at angelo@kinicki.com. Why? Because learning changes everything! Sincerely, Angelo Kinicki
