This new collection of essays aims to illustrate both the empirical and practical richness of the field as wellas its theoretical development. The chapters cover psychological processes, the study of groups and workteams, and the nature of complex organizations as a whole. Reflecting recent developments in psychology as well as society generally, topics range from skill and workload, shiftwork, personnel selection, training and careers, and the effects of new technology, leadership and management, to job stress and well-being, women in employment, corporate culture and processes of organizational change.
