Managing Human Behavior in Public and Nonprofit Organizations, Fifth Edition is an established core text designed to help students develop their leadership and management skills. Bestselling authors Denhardt, Denhardt, Aristigueta, and Rawlings cover important topics such as stress, decision-making, motivation, leadership, teams, communication, and change. Cases, self-assessment exercises, and numerous examples provide students with the opportunity to apply concepts and theories discussed in the chapter. Focusing exclusively on organizational behavior in both public and nonprofit organizations, this text is a must-read for students in public administration programs.

  • Increased attention to issues related to nonprofit organizations helps students develop a better understanding of the differences and similarities in public and nonprofit organizations, as well as the way they interact with one another and with the private sector.
  • Broadened coverage of issues related to ethics and diversity offers students a broader perspective on important issues to consider, such as the examination of implicit and explicit bias, generational differences, and power and privilege.
  • Additional discussions of collaboration, inclusion, and participation, both within the organization and with external constituencies, show students the value rationale for engagement and its practical effects.
  • Revised and updated information on emerging technology illustrates to students how an increasingly digital, connected, and networked environment affects our ability to manage public and nonprofit organizations.
