Abstract:

Three problem areas frequently encountered in organizational research are reviewed. These areas are a investigative models and measurement rationale, b experimental design and statistical methodology, and c level of analysis versus level of explanation. The review identified several needs for future research. A major need is the development of complex, integrative models incorporating both individual and situational characteristics and allowing for adaptive-dynamic processes. The investigation of such models requires a move from static, cross-sectional paradigms to dynamic longitudinal methods. Some discussions are presented in this regard. Modified author abstract
