Describes a charting technique that can help a company determine if the different variables in the workplace are combining to produce an environment that encourages positive workplace behaviour. The chart enables business managers to identify whether the organisational goals, performance measures and reward system, together with task and situation variables are all congruent or mutually reinforcing. The research is still at an exploratory stage and practical testing is continuing to examine the effectiveness of the chart. Some early case‐study investigations inside a manufacturing company are presented together with a synopsis of how the research will develop now the pilot study is complete.
