Assignment 2: Finding Your Place on the Scholar–Practitioner Continuum
An I/O professional has the unique opportunity to both participate in research for the development of the field and apply in practice the fruits of such research efforts. I/O professionals may suggest new lines of research or even conduct their own scientific studies. Conversely, I/O professionals may choose to focus exclusively on the practitioner side of the continuum.
Using the Argosy University online library resources, locate an empirical article that represents a strong example of the dual nature of I/O research and practice. Then, do the following:
Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references.
Your final product will be a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document written in APA format and utilize at least three sources from professional literature. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, and .gov). Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
