Research Focus

We were interested in two types of cognitions from middle managers: their expectations and their evaluations. Expectations are cognitive structures that an individual can hold about future activities and are, in an organizational setting, often associated with the occupancy of a certain organizational role.22 Evaluations are also cognitive structures, but they have a focus on past activities instead of future ones and capture middle managers’ subjective assessments of actual behavior of the TMT.
