Abstract : During 1963-4, publications and reports continued to center on four areas of organizational psychology: orientation and behavior, simulated organizations, the man-in-the-middle of an organization, and organizational conflict resolution. And, as a consequence of activities at the Graduate School of Business and management associations, an additional area emerged concerning management development. A chapter 'Organizational Psychology' was published in the 1964 Annual Review of Psychology which attempted to review the interdisciplinary contributions to this newly-emerging field. The problem areas discussed were decision processes in organizations, interpersonal relations, organizational structure and design, and the impact of technology on organizational behavior (Leavitt and Bass, 1964). Due to appear in early 1965 is a text 'Organizational Psychology' (Bass, 1965) focused on a systematic approach to understanding the interaction of men and formal organizations. It will deal with organizational goals and values, motivation to work, supervisor and group relations, classical versus modern organization theory, communications, intergroup conflict and executive decision-making.
