Abstract

Towards depolarization and collaboration in the study of behaviour and organization

Towards depolarization and collaboration in the study of behaviour and organization

S.G.L. Schruijer, Gedrag & Organisatie, Volume 17, October 2004, nr. 5, pp. 303-309

In this article I discuss the current practices of social and organizational psychology in view of the necessity to collaborate between both as established by Gedrag & Organisatie. I argue that social and organizational psychology are overspecialized and pillarized, reinforced by the nature of universities' structure, measurement culture and personnel- and control systems. An exclusive attention to performance indicators leads tot instrumental and individualistic behaviour. Room for diversity and collaboration is hardly present at universities although the call for multidisciplinary research is strong. I provide some suggestions on how collaboration can be realized and conclude with the wish that Gedrag en Organisatie will devote attention to the reflection on the practice of science.
