Definition of Organizational Psychology

The practice of organizational psychology consists of intervening with organizations to achieve one or more of the following objectives: (1) raise performance, (2) improve processes and relationships, (3) enhance fairness and equity, and (4) increase subjective well-being.

Always within the context of organizations, interventions may focus on individuals, pairs of individuals, groups, combinations of groups, or whole organizations.

Methods of intervention derive from explicit psychological concepts and theories appropriate to the objectives and entities engaged in change processes.

When fully utilized, the practice of organizational psychology begins with assessment or diagnosis, proceeds to design and implementation, and concludes with evaluation of the efforts to bring about change.

Organizational psychology is practiced with service- delivering and product-generating organizations from the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors of society.
