Formatted abstract
Managers seek information from multiple sources when deciding how to act. Event management processes are the sources of meaning managers refer to when they interpret and respond to the sequences of organizational events they experience. Questionnaire items were constructed to ask managers how much they use eight event management processes to respond to eight day to day situations. The questionnaires were administered to managers in sixteen different countries. The results for the Australian sample indicated that' respondents preferred their own experience and training to other sources of event meaning. Respondents from other countries differed in the event management processes they prefer. Cultural factors did not, however, predict managers· event management preferences as expected. Further studies are recommended to address the influences of culture and personal values on managers· event management styles.
