Fundamentals of Organizational Behaviour
Third Canadian Edition
Nancy Langton and Stephen P. Robbins

The third Canadian edition of Fundamentals of Organizational Behaviour takes a fresh approach to organizational behaviour coverage through more relevant examples, updated theory coverage, and a continued emphasis on pedagogically sound design.

In the third Canadian edition we have

  • continued focus on shorter chapters to capture student interest
  • added more exhibits to help clarify material and revised exhibits to make them clearer
  • introduced OB in Action exhibits that provide tips or "take-aways" from each

  •      chapter—things that readers can put into action right now, based on what they've
         learned in the chapter
  • updated the research base significantly and introduced more references to the research
  •      in the text

    This edition continues to emphasize the theme that OB is for everyone, from the bottom-rung employee to the CEO, as well as anyone who has to interact with others to accomplish a task. We remind readers of the material's relevance beyond a "9-5" job through each chapter's new feature, OB for You, which outlines how OB can be used by individuals in their daily lives. We also continue the emphasis of OB is for everyone in the From Concepts to Skills ensemble at the end of each chapter.

    Organizational Behaviour: Concepts, Controversies, Applications
    Fourth Canadian Edition
    Nancy Langton, Stephen P. Robbins

    The fourth edition of this best-selling OB text continues to provide the context for understanding OB in the Canadian workplace and highlights the many Canadian contributions to the field. Continuing with the fundamental philosophy that OB is for everyone, the text explores such issues as the following:

    • How does this theory apply in the Canadian workplace of today?
    • What are the implications of the theory for managers and employees working in the 21st century?
    • What are the implications of the theory for everyday life? Organizational behaviour, after all, is not something that applies only in the workplace.
    Subject matter reflects the broad multicultural flavour of Canada, and also highlights the roles of women and other visible minorities. Examples reflect the broad range of organizations in Canada: large, small, public and private sector, unionized and non-unionized.

    Fundamentals of Management
    Fifth Canadian Edition
    Stephen P. Robbins, Mary Coulter, and Nancy Langton

    The fifth Canadian edition of Fundamentals of Management by Stephen P. Robbins, Mary Coulter, and Nancy Langton is distinguished from other management books by its strong coverage of small business and entrepreneurial ventures. This edition introduces a new Canadian author to the project, Nancy Langton, and takes a fresh approach to management coverage through more relevant examples, updated theory coverage, and a more pedagogically sound design. The text offers great visual delivery of material through the effective application of charts, diagrams, and tables. The fifth Canadian edition of Fundamentals of Management provides an even stronger emphasis on applications than the fourth edition, while continuing to show students how management is for everyone.

    In the fifth Canadian edition we have

    • revised main chapter material and made changes to the content in each chapter.
    • significantly increased Canadian content, aiming for broader coverage throughout Canada while also covering many different types of Canadian organizations.
    • increased our emphasis on strategic management.
    • included a greater coverage of ethics, with more examples.
    • emphasized the presentation of a variety of different types of managers.
    • introduced more applications at the end of each chapter.
    • increased the number of cases in the text.

    This edition continues to emphasize the underlying philosophy that Management Is for Everyone. Students who are not managers, or who do not envision themselves as managers, do not always understand why studying management is important or relevant. We use examples from a variety of settings and have introduced a new end-of-chapter feature, Management for You Today, to help students understand the relevance of studying management for their day-to-day lives.
