Abstract:

The attitudes and performance of 2329 managers from 20 countries using one-way and two-way communication of geometric patterns in a communication simulation were compared. The vast majority of managers in every country preferred two-way communication both as receivers and as senders of information although two-way communication required more time than one-way. These preferences were reflected in greater accuracy two-way than one-way for most countries. Performance was not moderated by country differences, nor were attitudes moderated by educationtraining background. Modified author abstract
