dc.description.abstract The shift to participative management is considered to be both inevitable and necessary. No study has thus far been reported in the participation literature in terms of predictor variables for participative management. The aim of this study was to investigate whether certain orientations – and in particular, achievement motivation, locus of control and individual vs collective orientations – could be identified that would serve as predictors of an inclination towards participative management. The sample comprised 117 education managers from a government institution. Three predictor variables of participative management – aspiration level, autonomy and collectively – were identified. The implications of these findings are discussed. en
