Cognitive Styles as Predictors of Managerial Effectiveness: A Study of Private Sector Managers from Manufacturing Industries
One of the advantages, the Indian Industries had, was the quality combined with low cost. In recent years, this advantage is waning away because of the invasion of World market by cheaper products from China (Seetharama, 2012). This challenge can be overcome by producing quality products at reduced costs, which in turn requires faster and efficient design, manufacturing methods and effective managers for monitoring. Cognitive style is described as the way individuals imagine, perceive, distinguish, recognize, think and remember information (Rishipal, 2012). It is a persisting habitual pattern of perceptual and intellectual activity. With the help of cognitive styles an individual acquires knowledge (cognition) and processes information (conceptualization).
