Lecture Ideas Introduction The following files contain ideas for lectures based on the chapters and exercises contained in Buchanan and Huczynski's, Organizational Behaviour: An Introductory Text, fifth edition. They are arranged by chapter number, and the number of course lectures per week. They are oriented to a semester length course. As the sample below shows, each one contains an idea for a lecture content and objectives; indicates the key concepts, theories and research and authors to be considered; highlights the relevant lecture and tutorial exercises; and references to the Student Resources section of the Companion Website. There are a total of 72 suggested lectures.
