The most important resource an organization has is its staff, its human resources, and it is the task of management to help staff to reach their full potential in order to optimize the organization’s competitive advantage. Yet human behaviour is complex, and most managers neglect to explore fully the multifaceted principles—some practical, some abstract or philosophical—that are essential to understanding it. 

Here Seyed Mohammad Moghimi examines both the everyday and the theoretical insights offered by Islamic sources for managing organizational behavior. He takes a wide-ranging approach to key organizational issues, including organizational communication, organizational leadership, conflict management, and organizational culture and ethics. Drawing upon a rich and varied corpus of Islamic sources, he provides insights into large-scale organizational issues, and he also addresses organizational and behavioral management at an individual level, exploring in depth issues such as perception, personality, and motivation. These discussions are capped by reflections on how to lead in a way responsive to the complexities he uncovers, ultimately breaking new ground by providing a modern and applicable framework founded in Islamic management principles and suitable for the requirements of international businesses.  

For the wealth of findings and insights it offers within a field that remains deeply under-researched, Organizational Behavior and Management: An Islamic Approach is essential reading for managers and for students of management at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
