This is a jewel of a book for practitioners seeking to applyevidence-based principles of behavior in organizations.

These principles ask us tocheck our premises, the values and assumptions we make about theart and science of management. This forces us to understand thedecision context, to set priorities, and to move. In this way we can avoid fads and develop animproved, actionable body of knowledge. This is a jewel of a book for practitioners seeking to applyevidence-based principles of behavior in organizations.

In the first volume of this handbook, I asked experts in 39 areas of management to identify a central principle that summarized and integrated the core findings from their specialty area and then to explain this principle and give real business examples of the principle in action.

There is a strong movement today in management to encouragemanagement practices based on research evidence. In the firstvolume of this handbook, I asked experts in 39 areas of managementto identify a central principle that summarized and integrated thecore findings from their specialty area and then to explain thisprinciple and give real business examples of the principle inaction. I asked them to write in non-technical terms, e.g., withouta lot of statistics, and almost all did so.

The previous handbook proved to be quite popular, so I was askedto edit a second edition. This new edition has been expanded to 33topics, and there are some new authors for the previously includedtopics. The new edition also includes: updated case examples,updated references and practical exercises at the end of eachchapter. It also includes a preface on evidence-based management.The principles for the first edition were intended to be relativelytimeless, so it is no surprise that most of the principles are thesame (though some chapter titles include more than oneprinciple).

This book could serve as a textbook in advanced undergraduateand in MBA courses. It could also be of use to practicing managersand not just those in Human Resource departments. Every practicingmanager may not want to read the whole book, but I am willing toguarantee that every one will find at least one or more chaptersthat will be practically useful. In this time of economic crisis,the need for effective management practices is more acute thanever.

This book is required by my professor of a business class I took online. It is a very interesting book which I think all managers and leaders need to read it.
Each chapters was written by different author who is the leading expert on that topic. It has many evidence based principles and also help us how to implement some of those principles. It also has many success and failure examples to teach us how to become a successful manager.
The only problem is its small font size.
Suggestion: Print the book in a larger font.

I purchased this book after being in a team lead / supervisor role for 2.5 years. It opened my eyes to various issues we're experiencing in our organization and helped explain to me the possible reasons we have these issues. This book is used by universities for their courses so keep that in mind. I actually went out of my way to find a book used by a university because I wanted a book which was supported by solid research which of course this book is full of.

Came as advertised, and had an excellent rental price. Used this book for an MBA level course and was very pleased with the price, product, and time length for the rental.

Required for a class, it's an edited work...just a collection of other people's research.

The first chapter, and one of the best, is 'Select on Intelligence' by Frank Schmidt. He assets that higher intelligence leads to better job performance on all jobs, and at all levels. Schmidt provides what he calls a 'useful' definition of intelligence as the ability to learn, often known as general mental ability (GMA). Narrower abilities include verbal ability, quantitative ability, and spatial ability - they too predict job performance (because such tests measure GMA as well as specific aptitudes), though less well than GMA. People who are more intelligent also show fewer counter-productive work behaviors (CWBs).

For this condition to work, the company must be able to be selective in who it hires. Second, the company must have some way of measuring GMA - less valid are proxy measures such as GPA or class rank. Interview assessments are much less valid than standardized written tests. Third, variability in job performance must exist. A 1990 meta-analysis (Hunter, Schmidt, Judiesch) found workers in the top 1% of performance produced over three times as much output as those in the bottom 1%, in skilled jobs it was 15X, and even larger in professional and managerial jobs. As long as the three conditions are met, there are no known exceptions to this principle.

Labor leaders believe job experience is a better predictor of performance than general intelligence. Research shows that experience is a god predictor of job performance between 0 - 5 years, but no beyond that. Further, the incremental value of experience declines after about the third year. Thus, in the long run, hiring on intelligence pays of much more than hiring on job experience; further, if both are used, the weighting given GMA should be higher than that given job experience.
