Summary
Organizational Behaviour bridges the gap between OB and HRM, and the interrelated nature of these fields of study that are more often than not treated separately. It helps the reader to relate the OB canon to their experiences in the world of work and organizations and prompts them to question the way relationships around employment are managed within these institutions
