Article Summary

Kerr, S. (1995). On the folly of rewarding A, while hoping for B. Academy of Management Perspectives9(1), 7-14.

Each summary must include the following sections:

  • A short description of the purpose of the article. What questions or issues are the author trying to address?
  • The assumptions that the author makes. Are they valid? Why or why not?
  • The conclusions that the author draws. What are the key takeaways from the article? Are they well-supported by the example(s) described in the article?
  • How this article could apply to a real-world work situation that you faced, are facing or may face in the future. If you disagreed with the author’s assumptions and/or conclusions, cite a different peer-reviewed journal article on this topic and discuss how you would apply its conclusions instead to your real work life.
  • How this article relates to and/or conflicts with at least two properly cited topics, definitions, models, or theoretical frameworks in the textbook.
  • Proper in-text citation and bibliography of sources, using APA format.

Each section of the paper should be clearly labeled (e.g. Purpose, Assumptions, Conclusions, Real World Application, Textbook Topic 1, Textbook Topic 2, Works Cited). Summaries should be formatted in Times New Roman 12 pt font, double spaced, with 1” margins all around. For examples and details of APA format citations, students may refer to: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html.
