Implications and Applications of a Behavior Systems Perspective
Abernathy, William B.
Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, v28 n2 p123-138 Jun 2008
Improving employee performance in an organization seems to cycle back and forth among six broad approaches. Rather than debate which approach is most effective, the argument is made that each approach is simply one aspect of a larger behavior system. The ultimate answer, then, is to integrate these approaches within an overarching behavior systems perspective. A potential behavior systems perspective is described as well as its implications for employee performance improvement. An expansion of OBM graduate curricula is recommended that includes more diverse improvement strategies. (Contains 3 figures.)
