Leading teams : setting the stage for great performances by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teams have more talent and experience, more diverse resources, and greater operating flexibility than individual performers. So why do so many teams either struggle unpleasantly toward an unsatisfactory conclusion - or, worse, crash and burn shortly after launch?" "J. Richard Hackman, one of the world's leading experts on group and organizational behavior, argues that the answer to this puzzle is rooted in flawed thinking about team leadership. It is not a leader's management style that determines how well a team performs, but how well a leader designs and supports a team so that members can manage themselves."--Jacket

The job diagnostic survey : an instrument for the diagnosis of jobs and the evaluation of job redesign projects by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1979 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes the Job Diagnostic Survey (jds), an instrument designed to measure the following classes of variables: (1) objective job characteristics, particularly the degree to which jobs are designed so that they enhance work motivation and job satisfaction; (2) personnel affective reactions of individuals to their jobs and work setting; (3) the readiness of individuals to respond positively to "enriched" jobs--jobs with high potential for generating internal work motivation. Based on a specific theory of how jobs affect employee motivation, the jds is intended to: (1) diagnose existing jobs to determine if (and how) redesigning could improve employee productivity and satisfaction; and (2) evaluate the effect of job changes on employees--whether the changes derive from deliberate "job enrichment" projects or from naturally occurring modifications of technology or work systems. The jds has gone through three cycles of revision and pre-testing. Reliability and validity data are summarized for 658 employees in 62 different jobs in seven organizations who have responded to the revised instrument. Two supplementary instruments are also described: (1) a rating form for assessing "target" jobs; and (2) a short form of the jds. All instruments and scoring keys are appended. (Author/MW)
Group influences on individuals in organizations by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

8 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of groups on individuals in organizations are reviewed. Special attention is given to ways groups affect individual behavior indirectly by influencing the informational and the affective states of group members, and direct group influences on individual behavior through the development and enforcement of group norms. Implications of these processes are drawn for individual work effectiveness on various types of tasks or jobs, and the health and effectiveness of the group as a whole. (Author)
A new strategy for job enrichment by Yale University( Book )

6 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new strategy for redesigning jobs to increase the work motivation and satisfaction of employees is described. Included is a statement of the theory on which the strategy is based, discussion of how to carry out and interpret a diagnosis of jobs prior to change, and specification of action steps for job redesign which have been found to lead to beneficial personal and organizational outcomes. The report, which is oriented primarily to managers and behavioral science practitioners in organizations, concludes with a summary of findings from organizational tests of the theory and the change strategy.

Attrition in the liberal arts college by Wendell S Dysinger( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three colleges joined in a study of student withdrawal. The hypothesis of the study proposed that significant differences exist among students in their levels of commitment to higher education as the major opportunity of post-high-school years. Students with high levels of commitment face problems and either solve or tolerate them, while those with low levels of commitment tend to find the same problems adequate reasons for withdrawal. Data were gathered from several sources and analyzed. Four categories of students (persisters, transfers and returnees, "real" voluntary drops, and academic drops) were discriminated reliably and in meaningful terms by multiple discriminant analysis. Attrition-prone students were identified from the results in a reasonably high percentage of the cases. (Tc)
On the coming demise of job enrichment by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Job enrichment rapidly is becoming one of the most widely used behavioral science strategies for organizational change. And there is scattered but compelling evidence that, under certain conditions, the technique can lead simultaneously to both improved productivity and to an increase in the quality of employee work experiences. Yet observations of on-going job enrichment projects in a number of organizations suggest that the approach is failing in practice at least as often as it is succeeding--and that its future as a strategy for personal and organizational change may be bleak. This report (a) explores a number of frequently-observed errors in implementing job enrichment that can lead to 'failures' of the technique, and (b) identifies a number of ingredients found to be common to most of the 'successful' job enrichment projects that were observed

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motivation through the design of work : test of a theory by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1987 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focusses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) The psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motivated work behavior to develop; (b) the characteristics of jobs that can create these psychological states; and (c) the attributes of individuals that determine how positively a person will respond to a complex and challenging job. The model was tested for 658 employees who work on 62 different jobs in seven organizations. A number of special features of the model are discussed (including its use as a basis for the diagnosis of jobs and the evaluation of job redesign projects), and the model is compared to other theories of job design

Effects of task characteristics on group products by J. Richard Hackman( Book )

6 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most substantial determiner of product variance was task type. The task difficulty factor controlled a moderate proportion of the product variance, as did the interaction between task type and difficulty. Order of presentation was essentially unrelat4ed to the product dimensions, either as a main effect or in interaction with other factors. All of the product dimensions were involved in significant relationships with one or more of the experimental factors. The percentage of variance associated with these relationships ranged from a high of 59 per cent (for action orientation) to a low of 15 per cent (for adequacy). Finally, product 'creativity' was successfully predicted from the product dimensions in multiple regression analyses, and different patterns of Beta weights were obtained for the product dimensions when predictions were made separately for the three types.
