Comprehensive theoretical-conceptual models of human performance and organizational effectiveness are needed in the study of organizational behavior. Efforts to develop such models are reviewed from an evolutionary perspective, the concept of organizational climate is assessed as a central integrating phenomenon for understanding human effectiveness, and a new theorectical-conceptual model is presented which integrates and extends previous work on organizational behavior. This model designated the total spectrum model of human and organizational effectiveness, was formulated to reflect the complexity of contemporary organizational settings and provide a framework to guide organizational research and the development of advvanced multidimensional assessment tools.
