Managerial Performance Issues. Symposium 24. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This document contains three papers on managerial performance issues. "Managerial Skill Requirements: Evidence from the Scottish Visitor Attraction Industry" (Sandra Watson, Martin McCracken) presents the findings from an exploratory study of those skills that managers in the Scottish visitor attraction sector considered most important to success as a manager in the sector. The study established that most managers focused on operational-level skills and gave little credence to strategic/general, technological, and self-management skills, thus accentuating the need for training and development to equip managers with the skills needed to deal with rapid change. "An International Assignment and Managerial Performance: Job-Related Variables Relative to Effective Performance of Japanese Expatriates" (Kiyoe Harada) discusses a study that identified a significant relationship between the effectiveness of Japanese expatriates and job-related variables and explored the human resource development implications of the identified relationship. "Modeling the Impact of Managerial Behavior in a Store Environment" (Allan H. Church) reports on a study that provides an applied example of linkage research leveraging various sources of organizational data and uses the framework to model a predictive relationship between managerial behavior and internal performance measures across 500 different stores in a retail organization. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
