"Welcome to this sixth book in the Wiley Blackwell Industrial and Organisational Psychology series. This title in the series focus is on teams and collaborative processes at work and builds on the previous five titles in the series on leadership and change, coaching and mentoring, training and development, health and safety and positive psychology. Collaboration has for centuries been a key feature of success for any enterprise. Since the industrial revolution and rise of large-scale manufacturing of the nineteenth century, through to the development of global corporations of the twenty first century, team working and collaboration both within and across the organisation boundary is essential. Teams are the only way NASA, Google or IKEA can operate to deliver their products, services or mission. Understanding how to recruit, develop and manage teams is what this book is all about. This title is however just one of eight books in this Series totally over 200 chapters and 2 million words on Industrial and Organisational Psychology, and we believe this is the largest single contribution to the field. We believe this series differs in four ways from other titles in the field"--

A must-have resource for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students interested or involved in psychometric testing Over the past hundred years, psychometric testing has proved to be a valuable tool for measuring personality, mental ability, attitudes, and much more. The word ‘psychometrics’ can be translated as ‘mental measurement’; however, the implication that psychometrics as a field is confined to psychology is highly misleading. Scientists and practitioners from virtually every conceivable discipline now use and analyze data collected from questionnaires, scales, and tests developed from psychometric principles, and the field is vibrant with new and useful methods and approaches. This handbook brings together contributions from leading psychometricians in a diverse array of fields around the globe. Each provides accessible and practical information about their specialist area in a three-step format covering historical and standard approaches, innovative issues and techniques, and practical guidance on how to apply the methods discussed. Throughout, real-world examples help to illustrate and clarify key aspects of the topics covered. The aim is to fill a gap for information about psychometric testing that is neither too basic nor too technical and specialized, and will enable researchers, practitioners, and graduate students to expand their knowledge and skills in the area. Provides comprehensive coverage of the field of psychometric testing, from designing a test through writing items to constructing and evaluating scales Takes a practical approach, addressing real issues faced by practitioners and researchers Provides basic and accessible mathematical and statistical foundations of all psychometric techniques discussed Provides example software code to help readers implement the analyses discussed

Organizations in all sectors and in all industries are and will continue to be confronted by the challenge of multiple changes in their external environments. For example, creation of disruptive technologies, fluctuating economies, increasing or decreasing governmental regulations, demographic shifts, human and natural disasters, expanding globalism, and aggressive competition. As the environmental landscape changes unpredictably along many different dimensions, organizations must recognize and adapt to the discontinuous threats and opportunities that these changes create. This calls for organizations themselves to change in ways that their unique histories have not prepared them. Thus, organizations today need effective tools to enable them to quickly create solutions for complex, systemic, important, unprecedented problems. Organizations must also learn from their experiences in creating such solutions: high potential managers must acquire executive-level knowledge, skills, and attitudes; problem solving team members must learn how to develop high performing teams; team members must learn how to deal with problems among interdependent subsystems and between their organization and its various stakeholders. These are the areas in which action learning makes a powerful and enduring impact. This book is intended for leaders at all organizational levels who are contemplating leading, planning, and managing complex systems change using action learning. It has two parts. In part I, the authors use a series of questionnaires to enable organizational leaders to make informed decisions about the kinds and types of consultants they might engage to assist them in leading transformational, unprecedented organizational change and leadership development programs. The types of consultants considered are contract employees (extra-pairs-of-hands), trainer-educators, technical experts (techsperts) and subject matter experts (SMEs), consulting organizational psychologists (COPs) and organization development and change (OD&C) practitioners, task or process facilitators, and action learning team coaches. The authors encourage leaders to avoid all or nothing choices and to consider, instead, employing a mix of types of consultants to be deployed where each type is best suited to be of assistance. Multidisciplinary consulting teams are encouraged.Part II focuses on the requisite infrastructure for action learning projects and the role responsibilities that leaders must assume to assure the success of these efforts. The authors provide a detailed description of the essential elements of an effective action learning project. These are:1. Compelling, important, urgent, complex, unprecedented problems2. The action learning team3. The questioning and reflection process 4. The commitment to taking action5. The commitment to learning6. The action learning team coachFor each element, the authors provide detailed descriptions of essential leadership functions and the common issues that emerge. We provide advice to leaders on actions they can take to solve emerging project management problems and to learn from the experiences. The contributions of action learning to the process of developing a learning organization is also explored.
