Abstract

This study evaluates relationships between job performance, locus of control,
and cultural values. Survey data was collected from 265 managers working for US
controlled firms located in the US, Hong Kong, South Korea and Mexico. Findings
indicate that there is a stronger relationship between reported job performance and a
manager’s personality versus the manager’s culture. These results should help multinational
firms better understand a significant influence on the job performance of
mid-level managers working in different countries. US controlled, manufacturing
multinational firms can feel confident when designing management control systems
at the individual level regardless of the country in which they operate.
