Administrative Performance and Personality: Some Further Perspectives.
Dziuban, Charles D.
In this study, the data originally used by Hemphill, Griffiths, and Frederiksen in their "Whittman" study of principals' behavior patterns were factor analyzed using psychometric techniques. Results of the analysis substantiated four of the eight originally defined dimensions of administrative behavior, and an additional important factor termed "taking a course of action" was also identified. In his discussion, the author considers ways of reducing the complexity of current administrative behavior theories and offers some recommendations regarding the psychometric properties of data sets collected for administrative research.
