A Stress-Strain Perspective on Managerial Behavior

  • Thomas E. Drabek


For over two decades, I have built upon a series of concepts and assumptions about organizational behavior that I encountered during my graduate studies at The Ohio State University (Drabek, 1969; Drabek and Haas, 1969, 1974; Haas and Drabek, 1973). This cluster of ideas--referred to as a stress-strain perspective--has proved useful in organizing and interpreting research results in a variety of settings, especially those following large-scale disasters (Drabek, 1985b, 1983; Drabek et al., 1981).
