Abstract

This is the fourth review of Organizational Behavior (OB) in six years . The first was published by Mitchell in 1 979, followed by Cummings ( 1 982) and Staw (1984). Four reviews in a relatively brief time period have allowed authors to take a broad perspective on this growing field because they have not had to summarize many years of work in one review . This review will use the historical works of the field as a framework for interpretation. Within that framework, the journal literature in OB that appeared in 1983 will be highlighted . In addition, a recurring methodological theme, the level of analysis issue , will be presented . Finally, a strong argument 0066-4308/85/020 1 -0573$02 .00 SCHNEIDER will be made for adopting utility (cost-benefit) analyses as a way (but not the only way) of documenting the practical significance of OB . What is OB? OB is the confluence of individual, group, and organizational studies flowing from industrial-organizational (110) psychology and organization and manage­ ment theory (OMT) with headwaters in psychology (social, psychometrics), sociology (organizational, work , and occupational) , and management (scien­ tific, human relations). The field is bounded by concern for behavior
