In exploring whether or not Industrial Psychology is relevant, it is proposed that while the discipline has an important impact on the South African economy, the profession in this country has little relevance. The view is offered that it is more important that the discipline of Industrial Psychology remains relevant over time than for the profession to become relevant. Proposals are put forward in terms of how to maintain the relevance of Industrial Psychology as a discipline in a changing organisational environment. Opsomming Daar word voorgestel dat terwyl Bedryfsielkunde as dissipline ‘n belangrike rol in die Suid-Afrikaanse ekonomie speel, die professie in ons land irrelevant is. Die standpunt word gestel dat dit belangriker is dat Bedryfsielkunde as dissipline tersaaklik bly, as wat dit is vir die professie om op datum te kom. Voorstelle word gemaak oor hoe om die tersaaklikheid van die dissipline te handhaaf in ‘n veranderende organisatoriese omgewing.
