Whitelaw, Paul (2010) Re-conceptualising hospitality management: analysing and predicting career progression and success in hospitality. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

Developing a cohort of competent managers and leaders is a perennial problem in the hospitality industry. This thesis seeks to address this problem by identifying the personal characteristics, attributes and features that impact upon on career progression and success. The impact of these phenomena will be explained by a constructivist model. The model will incorporate a range of phenomena such as: behaviours (for example, career management and development practices); skills and competencies (for example, emotional intelligence, cognitive intelligence); and socioeconomic variables (for example, family background, size, and structure, current domestic arrangements, education, employment history, amongst others).
