Institute for Sport Business Director publishes new student textbook

Director of the Institute for Sport Business, Professor James Skinner has published a new textbook, entitled "Organizational Behaviour in Sport"

Written in collaboration with Professor Bob Stewart of Victoria University Melbourne, the textbook explores behaviour on individual, interpersonal, group and whole-organization levels, and centres on Professor Skinner's and Professor Stewart's key areas of teaching and research expertise. 

The textbook contains international case studies, learning objectives, review questions and guides to further reading for every chapter.

Organizational Behaviour in Sport is essential reading for all students and practitioners working in sport, leisure or recreation management".
