Abstract : After first identifying some of the major issues and limitations of traditional organizational behavior research, an emic (an insider's or subject's view of reality) perspective and ethnoscience methods are proposed. Specific techniques such as domain, taxomic and componential analyses are given detailed attention. Examples of the application of these anthropological perspective and techniques to organizational behavior research are included throughout and the limitations are carefully pointed out. (Author)
