Industrial and Organizational Psychology

The early 20th century was when industrial and organisational psychology first emerged. James Cattell (1860-1944), Hugo Münsterberg (1863-1916), Walter Dill Scott (1869-1955), Robert Yerkes (1876-1956), Walter Bingham (1880-1952), and Lillian Gilbreth were among the notable early psychologists who investigated topics that are now designated as industrial psychology (1878–1972).

The founder of experimental psychology, Wilhelm Wundt, had taught Cattell, Münsterberg, and Scott. Before World War I, some of these researchers were engaged in industrial psychology research. The Psychological Corporation, which Cattell founded and is still in business today, and the achievements of Columbia University students in the field of industrial psychology are two examples of how Cattell contributed to the field of industrial psychology. Münsterberg wrote Psychology and Industrial Efficiency in 1913, which included chapters on hiring, training, and advertising strategies.
