Abstract:This study argues that researchers have been ignoring one of the seminal theoretical arguments in the performance literature; that individual differences and environment characteristics do not directly influence performance itself, rather they relate to the determinants of performance. This study explicitly examines the relationships between individual differences, environmental variables, and performance determinants. Using as combination of a reduced Campbell (1990) model of performance and the P-E fit framework this study demonstrates how both individual difference and subjective and objective features of the environment combine in linear and multiplicative ways to influence performance determinants. Results show that relationships among antecedents and determinants of performance are complex, but testable and theoretically reasonable. Several aspects of Campbell's model of performance were supported. In addition, the importance of P-J fit as a construct related to performance determinants was demonstrated.
