Discusses psychology′s contributions to understanding administrative behaviour. Beginning with a general theoretical search for what moved people to act, psychologists provided analytical and descriptive content to understanding individual and group behaviour. They observed individuals in real life and experimental situations and designed laboratory experiments to simulate organizational situations. By focusing on factors most related to interpersonal interaction, productivity, motivation, and morale, they provided insights for evaluating administrative arrangements and managerial practices.
