Bogomtale fra forlaget.

Misbehaviour in organizations can be difficult for management to detect and correct, and as a consequence, the cost to organizations can be high. This book presents useful theories and empirical evidence that help to describe, explain, predict and control both attitudinal and behavioural problems in an organizational setting. The book analyses the current research, examines the causes of different types of misbehaviour, and makes suggestions for remedies and managerial practices that can help to reduce its occurrence and impact.
