Abstract and Keywords

This article outlines a conceptual framework for integrating recent developments in understanding the individual difference variables that directly influence and interact with situational variables in optimizing work adjustment and adaptive performance. It begins by outlining the components of the Theory of Work Adjustment, including an explanation of the dynamic aspects of the theory. A particular focus of the framework is on the dynamic attainment of achievement goals and the role that information and communication technology (ICT) can play when there is a turbulent and changing set of situational factors and job requirements. The article takes a futuristic approach and challenges the readers to consider the implications of the rapidly developing field of ICT for traditional models of selection and training.

Keywords: work adjustment, adaptive performance, ICT, selection, training
