Work Psychology and Organizational Behaviour
Managing the Individual at Work
- Wendy Hollway - Open University, UK
Occupational/Industrial Psychology | Organizational Behaviour (General)
Hollway deftly documents the key developments in the field, from scientific management and industrial psychology, through the human relations movement, to such current concerns as organizational culture, leadership and human resources management. She examines their production within particular conditions and power structures. She charts the impact of each trend upon the emergence of new management tools, work practices and ways in which employee regulation is attempted. The book concludes with a projection of the likely future development of work psychology and organizational behaviour in the light of current changes in work and employer-employee relations.
Work Psychology and Organizational Behaviour will be essential reading for teachers, students and practitioners in occupational psychology, organizational behaviour, industrial and organizational sociology, personnel and human resources management and public administration.
Very good and would recommend
While somewhat dated this provides a critical review of organisational psychology which is a good discursive starting point for introducing the topic to students. It is a more European/UK perspective but needs additional topics as well.
