This chapter aims to provide a big picture view of the field of industrial–organizational (I-O) psychology as it exists today. Major tensions in the field are examined, and compared with tensions that existed thirty years ago. Prominent I-O scholars provided their views on major issues in the field, including (a) a perceived need for increased focus on temporal and change processes, (b) a perceived need for more attention to the meaning of work in people's lives, (c) an increase in attention to worker welfare, and (d) a concern over the viability of I-O psychology as an academic discipline. The authors call for more translational research in I-O psychology, expanding the impact the field has on individual work lives.
