The Teaching and Behavioral Measurement of Managerial/Organizational Competencies: Developing Experiential Exercises and Simulations


  • Donald S. Kline
  • Donald Warrick


This panel/workshop investigates the teaching/acquisition of both organizational and managerial competencies. The basic questions addressed are: can and how such traits, motives, social roles and self-schema be taught, can gaining of competencies be measured, how can they be taught in function courses, and is the teaching of OD relevant to the task? After brief presentations by the two co-facilitators “mini-workgroups” will “brainstorm” possible experiential exercises and simulations which have been or might be developed to aid the teaching of managerial/organizational competencies. --A Simulation Game Model for Conglomerates
