Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1330. Reviews the book, Issues, Theory, and Research in Industrial/Organizational Psychology edited by Kathryn Kelley (1992). This eclectic volume includes a number of interesting topics. One of the sections, Theoretical Approaches to the Industrial/Organizational Field, includes three chapters assessing the theory and structure of the industrial/organizational (I/O) field, the implications of attraction research for organizational issues, and some problems with emergent institutional theory. The five chapters in the section, Traditional Areas of Research in Organizations, examine personality and managerial potential, team building and team effectiveness, perceived self-competence and organizational behavior, trends in managerial training, and organizational needs assessment.
