Management (Module 4 Case)- Job Attitudes

Module 4 – Case

JOB ATTITUDES
Assignment Overview
As noted on the Background page in this module, Swailes (2002) critiqued the conceptualization and measurement of the job attitude of

organizational commitment. Four years later, Harrison, Newman, and Roth (2006) integrated organizational commitment and job satisfaction into an

overall job attitude based on the compatibility principle in attitude theory, and found through meta-analysis of studies published between 1983

and 2004 that it substantially predicted integrative, higher-order behavioral outcomes. Riketta (2008) would have at least addressed, if not

resolved, the conceptualization and measurement issues that Swailes raised in their subsequent meta-analyses.

The focus of this case study is on the relationship between the conceptualization and operationalization of a construct, in this case the job

attitude of organizational commitment. As noted on the module Background page, Swailes (2002) critiqued the conceptualization and measurement

(operationalization) of organizational commitment. In the six years that followed, Harrison, et al. (2006) and Riketta (2008) published meta-

analyses of the impact of organizational commitment on performance.
