  2. Indicative Reading 23 items
    Please refer to the reading lists contained on the Moodle site. Due to the summative nature of this unit there is no core book. For those unfamiliar with ‘Indicative Lists’, one can utilise books along the theme, author of general subject area. An example being ‘Organisational Behaviour’ by Buchanan and Huczynski below, similar themed books would be Essentials of Organisational Behaviour’ by Mullens and Christy or ‘Organisational Behaviour’ by French, Rayner, Rees and Rumbles. Wiki’s and associated sites do not constitute reference-worthy material and use of sites such as ‘UK Essays’, businessballs and similar will likely lead to a delay whilst a request for a submission to Turnitin to avoid accusations of plagiarism is completed. The following contain sections that may be of use/interest in this unit.
