Internal versus External Control of Reinforcement: A Review of the Locus of Control Construct
Kormanik, Martin B.; Rocco, Tonette S.
Human Resource Development Review, v8 n4 p463-483 2009
One aspect of personality, perceptions of internal versus external control of reinforcement, shifts under conditions of change. This review of the literature examines the relationship between planned organizational change and locus of control. The review includes literature from the disciplines of clinical and social psychology, adult development, education and learning theory, business and management, and human resource development (HRD). The discussion closes with implications for HRD theory building, research, and practice.
