Researchers and practitioners looking for new or updated methods of measurement and data analysis must often spend a great deal of time tracking down and reading technical articles from a wide variety of journals devoted to these topics. Now, this fifteenth volume in the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology′s Organizational Frontiers Series fills the gap in the literature by providing readable, up–to–date discussions of many of the most important areas of measurement and data analysis. In each chapter, the expert authors provide descriptions of the types of problems that can or should be addressed with the approach, a description of the limitations of the method, and an instructive example that illustrates the advantages of the approach and highlights the way it should be used. Most important,Measuring and Analyzing Behavior in Organizations allows substantive researchers to learn about recent developments without having to spend countless hours reading highly technical books and articles.
