Abstract: This research project is a hypothesis testing study to investigate the effect of hierarchical level and work setting on the perception of importance on the managerial roles and its relationship with that of managerial skills of practicing occupational therapists. 724 questionnaires were sent out to the practicing occupational therapists whose names appeared on the register of occupational therapists on the 1st day of July 1999 and published in the "Special Supplement No.4" to "The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Gazette". 149 questionnaires were received in which 144 questionnaires were properly completed and used for data analysis. Variables manipulated included the hierarchical level and work setting. Among different hierarchical level, the results supported that there were significant differences on the perception of importance on the role of leader, monitor, spokesman, entrepreneur, disturbance handler, resource allocator, and negotiator. However, work setting only had effect on that of the role of resource allocator. Regarding the relationship between managerial roles and managerial skills in terms of their perception of importance, the results indicated that the decisional roles had strong correlation with the conceptual skills. Some of the interpersonal roles and informational roles namely leader role, monitor role and disseminator role had fairly strong correlation with the human skills. Finally, the interpersonal roles, informational roles and decisional roles had weak correlation with the technical skills.
