Research in Organizational Behaviour
Evidence-based Management: The process of translating principles based on the best scientific evi-
dence into organizational practices
By using evidence-based management, managers can make decisions based on the best available
scientific evidence rather than personal preference and unsystematic experience
The Basics of Organizational Behaviour Research
Hypothesis: A formal statement of the expected relationship between two variables
Variables: Measures that can take on two or more values
Independent Variable: The variable that predicts or is the cause of variation in a dependent variable
Dependent Variable: The variable that is expected to vary as a result of changes to the independent
variable
Moderating Variable: A variable that affects the nature of the relationship between an independent and
dependent variable such that the relationship depends on the level of the moderating variable
Mediating Variable: A variable that intervenes or explains the relationship between an independent
and dependent variable.
Measurement of Variables
Reliability: An index of the consistency of a research subject’s responses
Validity: An index of the extent to which a measure truly reflects what is supposed to measure
