Abstract
The causal direction between interpersonal trust and assessed value of an MBO program is investigated in a large mass-transit organization. Three measures of trust were collected that indicated the respondents’ trust of their superiors, top management, and the MBO consultant. The results indicated that trust in superior and trust in top management affect the assessed value of MBO. The relationship between trust in the MBO consultant and the assessment value of MBO suggests that an interaction effect occurred.
