Abstract : The aim of the study is to answer three kinds of questions: What are the effects of organizational climates (1) on the factorial structure of measures of administrative performance, (2) on the correlations between measures of administrative performance and various predictors of such performance, (3) and on the means of various measures of administrative performance. Data were collected at a two-day 'Research Institute' at which 260 executives employed by the State of California served as subjects. Each served as Chief of the Field Services Division of a fictitious department of the state, using an elaborate situational test that simulated an administrative position by requiring the examinee to respond to items in his in-basket as though he were actually on the job. Subjects also took a variety of ability tests and inventories and provided biographical information. (Author)
