Argyris Maturity Theory, presented by Chris Argyris in Personality and Organization, is one of the many theories that seek to explain the human nature and behavior. A mature person is characterised for being active, independent, self-confident and self-controlled.

Agryis believed that managers who treat people positively, and are responsible adults, will achieve the highest productivity. He thought that common problems of employee avoiding work, lack of interest, alienation and low morale may be signs of mismatch between management practice and mature adult personality. His solution to the problem is to expand job responsibilities; allow more task variety and adjust supervisory styles to allow more participation and promote better human relations.

Argyris's Maturity-Immaturity Continuum

Chris Argyris explored the concept of organizational learning and its impact on a company's growth, effectiveness and adaptability.
