Abstract

The ability for employees to adapt to a given situation is critical for organizations hoping to remain successful in today’s turbulent environment. For law enforcement officers, adapting to a situation is even more critical since this can be the difference between life or death. In an effort to assist law enforcement in promoting personnel with the adaptive performance (AP) skill required to be effective, this study examines the relationship between AP and an individual’s performance on an in-basket assessment. The study found that AP significantly predicts in-basket performance when rank is considered.

Does a measure of adaptive performance predict in-basket performance?

The ability for employees to adapt to a given situation is critical for organizations hoping to remain successful in today’s turbulent environment. For law enforcement officers, adapting to a situation is even more critical since this can be the difference between life or death. In an effort to assist law enforcement in promoting personnel with the adaptive performance (AP) skill required to be effective, this study examines the relationship between AP and an individual’s performance on an in-basket assessment. The study found that AP significantly predicts in-basket performance when rank is considered.
