Abstract

This study discusses the influence of locus of control, work motivation and information use on decision making of managers in the aviation industry in Nigeria. Stratified random sampling method was used to select 1238 managers from five aviation parastatals in Nigeria out of which 945 responded. The response rate achieved was 76.3 percent. The study found that locus of control, work motivation and information use significantly influence decision making of the respondents. It is therefore recommended that aviation industry administrators and most especially policy makers in the industry should give due attention to locus of control, work motivation and information use in order to improve the decision making of managers in the industry. From the managerial context, being aware of your employee’s internal-external locus of control can be very helpful in that individuals with high external locus are less likely to be committed to their organisation, they may feel unable to influence organisational decision making.
