Abstract : Selection of the best managerial personnel available, their placement and optimum development are major goals of management. These goals are equally shared by industry and the federal government. This research effort undertakes a new and little studied approach to satisfying this need by developing a test instrument based upon situational decision opportunity alternatives. Executive capacity indicators were identified and hypotheses relating to executive capacity indicators were tested. A data base of executive success was established by responses from nearly 200 proven executives from industrial, federal, and military organizations. The populations were then combined and tested and compared with the opinions on executive success as expounded in current management literature.
