This book aims to support courses that go towards meeting the ECUK requirements for management and business training, with coverage of team and group working, and further discussion of international cultural difference, which are major features of engineering degrees today. Chapters also cover key issues for maintaining a healthy working environment within an organisation, such as motivating employees, managing stress and dealing with organisational politics, as well as subjects to provide a greater understanding of company management including leadership and organizational structures.
An Introduction to Organisational Behaviour for Managers and Engineers provides not only a practical introduction to OB for management students, but also a text that is specifically aimed at the needs of engineers and students of engineering.
