A considerable amount of research has been and continues to be conducted concerning the determinants of individual job performance. A number of diverse perspectives have formed the basis of this research, including theories involving general abilities, motivation, feedback, leadership, and group processes. There is clearly a need for an integration of these theoretical perspectives so that researchers can gain a better understanding of the direct and indirect relationships associated with job performance. This article proposes a conceptual framework to guide researchers interested in the causal modeling of job performance.
