Its analogue in the environment is objective performance. For both states, products are measured and evaluated; a level o f performance results. For objectíve performance this occurs in the environment; for self-evaluation, it occurs within the individual. I n addition to the person's evaluation o f his or her o w n products, there are evaluations by a variety o f others in the person's environment. T h e person has some perceptions o f these evaluations, and these are located 42 A Theory of Behavior in Organizations in the perceived others evaluations.

T h e r e is a related process that occurs for his or her self-evaluation, but it operates differently, and will be discussed later. H e r e w e are referring only to the external system. T h e s e evaluation-to-outcome contingencies reflect the external reward system as perceived by the person. W h e n the products a person creates are evaluated, they are placed on some g o o d - b a d continuum. W h e n this process is completed, we speak o f performance. T h e evaluation-tooutcome contingencies, then, are the person's perception o f how his or her performance is reflected into outcomes from the environment.

Thus, whereas the organization may intend that some o f these noncontingent outcomes should be rewards, such allocation is not a reac­ tion to the individual's performance. T h e advantage o f the distinction between contingent and noncontin­ gent outcomes is that it allows us to isolate and identify the process by which the environment deals uniquely with the individual. A s w e shall see, the processes involved in the environment's measurement, evalua­ tion, and reward systems for a given individual become important influ­ ences on the behavior o f that individual.
