For more than a decade, organizational behavior scholars have highlighted the importance of studying phenomena through a temporal lens by focusing on the role of time and its various implications for research. When a phenomenon occurs, what aspects of the phenomena are being influenced, how these aspects are being influenced, and why this influence occurs are considerations of the utmost importance when trying to understand the full essence of organizational behavior.

Handbook on the Temporal Dynamics of Organizational Behavior is designed to help scholars begin to address the temporal shortcomings in the extant organizational behavior literature. The handbook provides conceptual and methodological reasons to study organizational behavior from a dynamic perspective and offers new conceptual and theoretical insights on some of the most popular organizational behavior topics.

By providing the methodological and analytical tools needed to translate dynamic ideas into dynamic reality, this handbook will become a guiding light for scholars, academic audiences, and evidence-based management practitioners who wish to tackle the challenges of dynamic organizational behavior research.
‘This Handbook is a one-stop shop for scholars interested in all things “dynamic”—theory, method, and analysis. By delving into objective time both deeply (e.g., questioning what dynamic means) and broadly (i.e., coverage across multiple research streams), these authors capture the current state of dynamism in organizational behavior and make provocative suggestions for the future. A must-read for any time scholar.’
– Abbie Shipp, Texas Christian University, US

‘This book is a very novel and innovative approach to understanding organisational behaviour (OB), by focussing on how time affects OB. It is a must read for any student or scholar in the field, informed by global, thoughtful organisational scientists in the field.’
– Sir Cary Cooper, CBE, University of Manchester, UK
