Informal Control Modes and Initiative Performance : The Moderating Role of Supervisors’ Political Behavior

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract In this paper, we focus on informal control modes (composed of certain levels of informal input, behavior, and output control) utilized by top managers to steer growth initiative teams. We propose that the informal control mode utilized interacts with the existing level of supervisor’s political behavior to influence initiative performance. Survey data on strategic growth initiatives collected from 201 corporations serve to test our hypotheses. Our results of moderated regression analysis highlight the importance of adapting the control mode to the specific supervisors’ political behavior.
