An Analysis of the Role of Self Concept and Organizational Concept and the Effects of Their Relative Congruence on Organizational Participation and Work Performance.
Vanderpool, James H.
This study analyzed the role of self concept and organizational concept, and the effects of their relative congruence on organizational participation and work performance. Subjects were 20 first-line supervisors in a midwestern manufacturing company. They were interviewed and tested for self concept, organizational concept, organizational participation, and work performance, using an ex post facto field study methodology. The subjects were then classified into three groups according to conceptual states: (1) positive, (2) neutral/positive, and (3) negative. Means, standard deviations, and correlations of variables were computed. A one-way analysis of variance tested for discriminate analysis of significance between groups, and tests were used for discriminate analysis of variables between groups. The results showed a partial relationship between self concept and organizational concept and a statistically significant relationship between organizational participation, work performance, and the conceptual states.
