Abstract : A review of cross-national managerial attitudes and behaviors was organized around eight themes. The eight subject areas were: superior-subordinate relationships; managerial needs or motivation; interpersonal processes; organizational goals; perceptions of equity; decision-making under uncertainty; managerial values; relationship between managerial attitudes and other organizational and environmental variables. It was concluded that while the comparative study of managerial behavior is extremely difficult because the usual research problems are magnified many times. Despite methodological problems, considerable advances have been made in a relatively short time. Several substantive research directions were proposed. (Author)
