For many years, scholars aligned with
mainstream research paradigms that make up organizational behavior (OB) have
been leaning toward the more positive depiction of organizational reality. To
better understand people's behavior in the workplace, they must also explore
misbehavior. Organizational Misbehavior (OMB) is a term that was coined by Yaov
Vardi about 10 years ago 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 organizational behavior theory and research. Devoted to the study
and management of misbehavior 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 misbehavior 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 misbehavior in organizations. The book is intended
for students, scholars, and practitioners who manage OB.
