In this article, we define good scholarship, highlight our points of disagreement with Locke and Latham (2009), and call for further academic research to examine the full range of goal setting's effects. We reiterate our original claim that goal setting, like a potent medication, can produce both beneficial effects and systematic, negative outcomes (Or óñez, Schweitzer, Galinsky,& Bazerman, 2009), and as a result, it should be carefully prescribed and closely monitored.
