Abstract

Abstract One of the problems in developing a composite criterion is the weighting of its multiple components. Pairwise dominance judgments on 20 profiles of managers on six criterion elements served as input data in determining a composite measure of managerial success. American and foreign executives in two management development programs served as judges. The weights were estimated by a new technique using linear programming. An excellent fit of the composite criteria to the pairwise judgments was obtained and high correlations were demonstrated between these criteria and independent ratings of managerial success. Compensation and Expenditure Authorization were the most important criterion elements. Other important elements receiving lesser weights were Level of Supervision, Staff/Line designation, and Career Satisfaction.
