Abstract:

The influence that managerial style has on communication in the program management environment was assessed. A literature search was conducted followed by an analysis of pertinent data. The Managerial Grid of Blake and Mouton was coupled with the Johari Awareness Model of Luft and Ingham to provide a conceptual framework for assessing the myriad of managerial styles. The effect various styles have on communication was then analyzed. Consequently, any program manager can be administered the Styles of Management Inventory Test of Teleometrics International and use the results in connection with this report to assess the communications impact on his program office.
