Building an organizational science of behavioral consistency: comment on Katz-Navon, Kark, and Delegach (2019)

Jonas W. B. Lang, Zen Goh

Research output: Contribution to journalComment / DebateOtherpeer-review


This commentary links Katz-Navon et al.’s findings on behavioral inconsistency to two extant literatures on (a) climate strength in organizational units, and (b) on individual adaptability across situations, both touching on the notion of consistency. The authors also suggest that Katz-Navon et al.’s findings on the middle area of scales could be extended using psychometric methods like item-response tree modeling techniques that split responses to Likert-scales into sub processes.
