Culture and Organizational Behaviour by Jai B. P. Sinha

Book Description

"Culture and Organizational Behaviour" is a textbook for management studies that highlights the effect of the confluence of Western and Indian cultural influences. It adheres to the syllabi of the organizational behaviour courses followed in most major universities and management institutes. The book presents basic knowledge of organizational behaviour as developed in the West, adds to these the latest global research findings, and situates them in the Indian cultural perspective. It also highlights the issues that emanate from the interface of the Indian culture and organizational behaviour. It contains updated case studies from Indian organizations. It focuses on current and emerging strategies in organizational structures, leadership, power and politics.It covers topics like balancing work and other responsibilities, power and politics, and conflict and negotiation, which, though extremely crucial to organizational behaviour, have perhaps not got due attention in the existing literature. It also presents the relatively unexplored effects of Indian culture on organizational behaviour and provides a platform where both theoretical and practical issues can be addressed by managers, researchers, students, and teachers alike.
