Since this kind of specific information is not likely to be in a book, you'll want to locate scholarly articles that describe the management environment and practices at the company. Click the yellow Business - Articles tab at the top of the page, and you'll find a variety of databases for this kind of information. Here's a few tips for your searches!
- To find information about Delta Airlines and the idea of management or organizational behavior in the same search, use a Boolean (BOOL-ee-un) search technique by placing AND between the two terms. It would look like this when you type it into the search box: "Delta Airlines" AND management or Delta Airlines AND organizational behavior. You will want to play around with your search terms in order to find the combination that yields the best results.
- Make sure to click any check boxes for Peer Reviewed and Scholarly Journals to ensure that the database returns items from only academic and scholarly sources. Another handy button is for Full Text - this makes sure it will return only items that you can read right away!
Each database is a unique collection of articles. Try different ones to find the best resources for your topic. I would recommend beginning in ABI/Inform Complete by ProQuest and then moving on to Business Source Complete. In addition, go into Science Direct as I found some good results there as well.
