The concept of time is a crucial filter through which we understand any events or phenomena; nothing exists outside of time. It conditions not only the question of ‘when’, but also influences the ‘what, how and why’of our ideas about management. And yet management scholars have rarely considered this ‘temporal lens’ in understanding how time affects employees at work, or the organizations for which they work.
This 2-volume set provides a fresh, temporal perspective on some of the most important and thriving areas in management research today. Volume 1 considers how time impacts the individual, and includes chapters on identity, emotion, motivation, stress and creativity. Volume 2 considers time in context with the organization, exploring a temporal understanding of leadership, HRM, entrepreneurship, teams and cross-cultural issues.
There is an overall concern with the practical implications of understanding individuals and organizations within the most relevant timeframes, while the two volumes provide an actionable research agenda for the future. This is a highly significant contribution to management theory and research, and will be important reading for all students and researchers of Organizational Behavior, Organizational Psychology, Occupational Psychology, Business and Management and HRM.
'Until now, there has been little attention paid to the effects of time on key topics within Organizational Behaviour. This interesting book has been put together by academics with excellent credentials in this area and presents a different way of looking at many organizational topics. As such it is likely to have an impact in terms of stimulating new research in the field, and will appeal to academic researchers in psychology and organizational behaviour. It is also a useful book for graduate students.' - Fiona Jones, Institute of Psychological Sciences, University of Leeds, UK
