Description - Misbehavior in Organizations by Yoav Vardi
For many years, scholars aligned with mainstream research paradigms that make up organizational behaviour (OB) have been leaning toward the more positive depiction of organizational reality. To better understand people's behaviour in the workplace, they must also explore misbehaviour. Organizational Misbehaviour (OMB) is a term that was coined by Yaov Vardi when he found out there were no models for how to predict "misconduct" at work. Thus, the purpose of this book is to delineate a new agenda for OB theory and research. Devoted to the study and management of misbehaviour in work organizations, this volume is divided into three parts. Part I discusses the prevalence of these phenomena. It searches for typologies and definitions for misbehaviour in the management literature using a historical perspective and proposes a general framework of OMB. Part II explores some important manifestations and antecedents of OMB at different levels of analysis - the person, the job and the organization. Finally, Part III presents practical and methodological implications for managers and researchers.
The authors offer a comprehensive and systematically developed framework for the development and management of misbehaviour in organizations. The book is intended for students, scholars and practitioners who manage OB.
