. . . the emphasis on simple selection models to
decrease in favor of a systems approach which will include,
on a conceptual level at least, not only the subject's
aptitudes, the nature of the organizations' reward system,
quality of supervision., etc. 90
During this search of the literature there was no study
found that used purchasing personnel as the subjects for investigation.
It is this discovery that provides the basis for the present study.
The present chapter consists of an overview of current
literature concerning the development of business games for educa-
tion and research. A brief review of the development of manage-
ment thought from 1900 to the present is presented in an attempt to
illustrate the point that "decision-making" and "management"
are conceptually synonymous terms. In addition, theory concern-
ing the relationship between personality characteristics and manager-
ial effectiveness is presented. The concept of personality is vague
due to the fact that there are differing opinions among psychologists
as to the definition of personality.
Chapter II also presents a review of the literature con-
cerning the evolution of purchasing from basic clerical tasks to a
major functional responsibility in many industrial concerns.
