Organisational Behaviour: Core Concepts and Applications – 1st Australasian edition streamlines key organisational behaviour topics into 14 concise chapters, ideal for use in the typical 12 or 13 week undergraduate teaching Semester. Based on the popular Organisational Behaviour 3rd edition by Wood et al, this Core Concepts edition has retained the key themes of the original work, while accomplishing the goal of reflecting the content coverage of a typical one semester Organisational Behaviour subject. Content is relevant and tightly focused, to engage rather than overwhelm students.

Its flexible four part structure clearly articulates the importance of studying and understanding organisational behaviour as a discipline. Beginning with an explanation of organisational behaviour as a concept, the text progresses logically through managing the various organisational components of individuals, groups, teams and processes with a consistent theme of enhancing organisational performance.
