Journal of Organizational Behavior

This assignment will introduce you to the types of research available to you as managers or future managers.

Find a recent article in an Organizational Behavior, Management, or Psychology journal that piques your interest (see list of journals below). Choose a recent article (2020-2021) that describes a study that was conducted by the author, as opposed to an article in which the author describes someone else’s research. Articles that have a sustainability focus will be appreciated, but any topic that you find interesting and relevant will be fine. No credit will be given for articles that are 1) not empirical, and 2) older than 2020.

Briefly summarize the article (in your words, not the author’s words), and explain what the key “takeaways” are (e.g., how can managers use the knowledge gained from the research?). Be sure to mention the nature of the study (e.g., experimental, survey, case study, meta analysis), the nature and size of the sample, and the degree to which you believe the findings are 1) internally valid and 2) generalizable. End with a brief explanation of how you or your classmates might use the information gained from the study. Be sure to include a full citation of the article (i.e., authors, title, journal, year published, issue of journal, page numbers). You should keep your summary to three or four paragraphs. You’ll want to come up with a catchy title to draw classmates to your summary

How to be a wise consumer of psychological research Dr. Denise Rousseau discusses evidence-based management:

Answer preview

The main takeaway is that managers can use the research findings to improve organizational collaboration. They should understand that creative collaboration enhances employee performance. However, intercultural conflicts can discourage effective collaboration in the organization. Therefore, managers should solve intercultural conflicts in the workplace to retain successful collaboration. Also, the information presented by Chua and Jin (2020) can help me grow in my career. As a future manager, the information about gender, intercultural conflicts, and collaboration can help me form a collaborative team. For example, I learned it is necessary to combine different genders in a team because women are good at reducing intercultural conflict.
