    • "It is based on a theoretical approach to understand the interplay between concepts within a broader integrative model, the Human System Audit (HSA). The model " emerges as an integrated proposal, made from the context of Work and Organizational Psychology, for the Assessment of Intangibles, for the Assessment of Quality in models of excellence, and in general for the diagnosis of and intervention in the Human System in Organizations, as well as for research on human behavior in them " (Quijano et al. 2008, p. 92). Specifically, the ICI model is one of the most important contributions of HSA. "

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to confirm the factorial structure of the Identification-Commitment Inventory (ICI) developed within the frame of the Human System Audit (HSA) (Quijano etal. in Revist Psicol Soc Apl 10(2):27–61, 2000; Pap Psicól Revist Col Of Psicó 29:92–106, 2008). Commitment and identification are understood by the HSA at an individual level as part of the quality of human processes and resources in an organization; and therefore as antecedents of important organizational outcomes, such as personnel turnover intentions, organizational citizenship behavior, etc. (Meyer etal. in J Org Behav 27:665–683, 2006). The theoretical integrative model which underlies ICI Quijano etal. (2000) was tested in a sample (N=625) of workers in a Spanish public hospital. Confirmatory factor analysis through structural equation modeling was performed. Elliptical least square solution was chosen as estimator procedure on account of non-normal distribution of the variables. The results confirm the goodness of fit of an integrative model, which underlies the relation between Commitment and Identification, although each one is operatively different.

    ABSTRACT: In a highly uncertain and changing context the current one, organizational leaders have a key role in making effective decisions. Recent research suggests transformational leadership as the highly effective management style in this context, as it relates to individual and organizational standards of objective and subjective performance criteria. The new situation we face, since we are in full uncertainty, cannot be treated by applying conventional models, In order to provide appropriate advice, the application of techniques and mathematical models based on fuzzy sets offers a variety of tools. In this research, we have decided to search for maximum similarity sub-relations to compare two measurement methods to be able to decide which one is the most appropriate one.
