The Theory of Planned Behavior
The Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) started as the Theory of Reasoned Action in 1980 to predict an individual’s intention to engage in a behavior at a specific time and place. The theory was intended to explain all behaviors over which people have the ability to exert self-control. The key component to this model is behavioral intent; behavioral intentions are influenced by the attitude about the likelihood that the behavior will have the expected outcome and the subjective evaluation of the risks and benefits of that outcome.

Designing Trustworthy Organizations

Sloan Management Review, Summer 2013

 Robert Hurley: Six types of signals people consider when deciding whether to trust a person, group or organization (a “trustee”):

Common values: Does the trustee share our values and beliefs?
Aligned interests: Do the trustee’s interests coincide rather than conflict with ours?
Benevolence: Does the trustee care about our welfare?
Competence: Is the trustee capable of delivering on commitments?
Predictability and integrity: Does the trustee abide by commonly accepted ethical standards (such as honesty and fairness), and is he or she predictable?
Communication: Does the trustee listen and engage in open and mutual dialogue?
