Group Performance Under Experienced and Inexperienced Leaders; A Validation Experiment.
Fiedler, Fred E.; Chemers, Martin M.
This study investigated the effect of experience and training on the performance of Belgian naval officers in an experimental leadership situation. As in a previous study conducted with Belgian naval personnel, group performance under trained and experienced officers was not significantly better than performance under untrained recruits. Moreover, length of leadership experience as an officer was not correlated with performance on any of the five different tasks or with group member satisfaction. (Five references and three tables are included.) (authors/ly)
