  • Abstract

    This study focuses on the management skills of respondents from Sahiwal, Pakistan, to see if gender and education can be significant factors in their technical, human and conceptual competencies. The results of 470 Pakistani adults show that there are significant differences in their management skills. No significant gender differences were found. In terms of the education variable, this study demonstrated that having a masterís degree does not necessarily increase a personís human, technical or conceptual skills. Implications for educators, managers, and human resource professionals are presented.
