Abstract : The purpose was analysis of the data obtained by mailed questionnaires from 3970 middle management executives and professionals in twelve military, industrial and governmental organizations. Results support the thesis that the unusually rapid and diverse changes in middle management work since World War 2 (in material technology, ways of dealing with people, and organizational growth) have had an important effect on middle management careers. This effect is looked on as a boon to career advancement rather than as a source of career retardation. (Author)
