The Relationship between Identifiable Attributes and Decision-Making Ability of Purchasing Personnel as Measured by the Results of a Management Game Page: 66
Each of the aforementioned associations were contacted by-
letter, an example of which may be seen in Appendix A. In turn,
follow-up telephone and personal contact was made with the Profes-
sional Development Chairmen of the organizations. In each case
the Chairman was both receptive and enthusiastic about his associa-
tion's participation in this study. Appointments were made to present
the membership of the associations an outline of the experiment at a
regular meeting. Members were requested to meet with the
researcher following the meeting for a more detailed explanation of
the management game that they were to play.
At the meeting of the participants each volunteer was pro-
vided with a packet of materials which included the following items:
1. Condensed operating instructions on the details of game
play consisting of twelve pages which were condensed from Greenlaw
and Frey's 200-page manual. (Appendix B. )
2. A personal and professional data questionnaire which
provided the basis for the biographical information presented in this
study. (Appendix C. )
3. A computer printout of an income statement showing the
results of the first period decision. (Appendix D. )
