The Behavioral Systems Analysis (BSA) method involves outlining how the components of the system interact, including how each individual contributes to the overall functioning of the system (McGee, 2007). The value of BSA is that it allows us to analyze the organization outside the basic three-term contingency of antecedents, behaviors, and consequences to identify variables that can significantly impact individual and organizational performance. By analyzing the entire organization as a system, one can identify areas of improvement that will produce the largest positive impact on the organization and focus on planning and managing the variables that support desired performance (Diener et al., 2009).
Behavioral Analysis Systems aims to define, outline and implement procedures to maximize individual contribution, shape components of the operations of the system and develop positive and functional relationships between employees and their employer’s. Evidence based interventions such as contingency contracting, reinforcement systems, proficiency scales, feedback and communication, can all enhance the overall quality of work and employer-employee relations, thus making the work experience efficient, pleasing and rewarding while producing a positive atmosphere.
