    Measuring Up: Personnel and Organizational Assessment is a foundational text that examines issues related to personnel and organizational performance, and addresses how to effectively assess individuals, teams, and whole organizations. While many standard texts focus primarily on techniques, theories and research on personnel selection, Measuring Up connects people, whether individuals or groups, to the organization on a larger scale and discusses the impact of these connections and relationships.

    The book covers work and job analysis, personnel recruitment and selection, personnel tests, individual and team performance evaluations, assessments of training and professional development, organizational process and performance, and business organizations in today's cultural and global contexts.

    Providing a comprehension introduction to work behavior and organizational dynamics, Measuring Up is well-suited to courses in organizational systems and behavior, personnel psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, and human resource management. Practical and applicable, it is also an excellent reference for professionals involved in recruiting, assessing, training and developing employees.
