An integrated series of surveys and experiments is described and the results are cast within the framework of a systems model for describing parameters of effective managerial style. The model conceives of system inputs as situational variables, within system relations of power and information distribution between boss and subordinate, within system managerial style, and system outputs of work unit effectiveness and subordinate satisfaction. Each of class of system variables was defined and measures of them were developed via factor analysis of a 288 item survey questionnaire completed by 325 managers and subordinates. An experimental paradigm was developed that provided for manipulation of power, information, and managerial style in boss-subordinate dyads. Modified author abstract
