Self-Efficacy: The Foundation of Human Performance
Peterson, Tim O.; Arnn, Royalyn B.
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v18 n2 p5-18 Jun 2005
People may be an organization's most important resource but their performance is absolutely critical to the organization's survival and ultimate growth. What produces human performance? What are the critical components? This manuscript develops the basic thinking about what causes a human to perform and then presents evidence for the addition of one new component--self-efficacy. Next, the manuscript develops a fundamental understanding of self-efficacy and how it fits into human performance. (Contains 3 figures.)
