Disentangling the Empirical Evidence between Personality, Work Experience, and Improvisation among Middle Management Government Officers
This study examined the empirical association between personality traits, work
experience, and improvisation. Big five personality traits (Extraversion, Agreeableness,
Conscientiousness, Neuroticism, and Openness) and individual work experience were
the independent variables; whereas individual improvisation was the dependent
variable. Data were collected from middle management level of government officers
from various ministries in Putrajaya, Malaysia. Results revealed that Extraversion
and Openness had a significant and positive contribution towards improvisation while
other traits (Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Neuroticism) did not demonstrate
a significant association with improvisation. The findings of this study could contribute
to the collective knowledge of management and be useful to both theorists and managers.
