Abstract

Leadership experts define organizational vision as an individual's positive vivid cognitive image of an organization, e.g., success, size, employees, strategic direction, in the future. This concept infers that different people may have varying ability to create this image. This paper describes the preliminary validation of a scale designed to measure an individual's visioning ability. Factor analysis and tests of reliability and of content, construct, and concurrent validity suggest that this visioning ability scale is a valid and reliable measure of an individual's visioning ability.
