Abstract : An international data bank on managerial behavior has been created which provides the basis for cross-cultural and cross-organizational research on individual, group and organizational behavior. This research program has also led to the development and testing of organizational simulations that serve both as vehicles for training and as research instruments. A worldwide network of institutions and individuals has been developed that systematically trains managers and provides standardized research data. An information system has been set up to receive, store, retrieve and disseminate research information. In workshop programs, management educators learned how to use materials and received what was often their first exposure to participative education. (Author)
