Abstract: This paper reports on the development and initial validation of an instrument intended to measure manager's mental model styles. This research describes instrument development using a group of subject matter experts, and preliminary validity assessments using Exploratory Factor Analysis and Confirmatory Factor Analysis techniques. Data were collected from a sample of US managers and initial results are provided and discussed. While there is good preliminary evidence for emerging factor structures, significantly more data will need to be collected from a variety of cultural and industrial contexts to support the development of a useful instrument.
