Abstract

In The Handbook of Organizational Culture and Climate: Second Edition, a team of leading international scholars presents the state-of-the-art in the field, ten years after the publication of the award-winning First Edition. Following the Preface by Edgar Schein, 33 entirely new chapters document the development and maturing of ideas canvassed in the First Edition, and also offer exciting new perspectives on organizational culture and climate. This Handbook will be a must-have resource for researchers and students in management, human resource management, organizational behavior, industrial and organizational psychology, and social psychology.
