Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

This new kind of OB product,Organizational Behavior: Real Solutions to Real Challenges, came from our increasing recognition of the challenges faced by former students working in contemporary organizations today. Those graduates tell us that they are ultimately challenged most by the “people problems” in their work. So, we wanted our current students to understand that reality and to exposure them to the best current evidence and thinking about how informed people attack those challenges. Our charge was to create a product that focused on real solutions to real challenges in the real world. We have drawn on many sources including the Management & Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (MOBTS) and the Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC) of the Academy of Management.
