© 2017, © Emerald Publishing Limited. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to empirically test the extent to which gossip plays a role in individual reputation development in the context of contemporary organizations. This study answers the continuous calls to integrate theory across fields by exploring the theoretical links between these two constructs. Design/methodology/approach: This study provides a conceptual analysis and general review of the literature on gossip and reputation. The relationship between these two constructs is investigated through a two-study package (lab and field) yielding convergent results. Findings: The findings of this study are that gossip contributes to organizational identity in that it reinforces the social norms of groups and that gossip serves as an important enabler of reputational development. This study provides empirical evidence that gossip serves a more significant role in the development of personal reputation than more formal methods of communication. Practical implications: As organizations and individuals attempt to develop and capitalize on the effects of individuals¿ reputations, this study provides practical insights into the knowledge that needs to be built regarding the method by which this development can occur. This study points to the practical value of gossip in the creation of personal reputation. Originality/value: The theoretical framework in this study highlights the centrality of gossip as a primary enabler of reputation development in contemporary organizations. Reputation theory is advanced by studying a segment of the construct that has, until now, been excluded from consideration in this field.

There is substantial evidence to suggest that the competency movement is still in its infancy in Australia in 1997, despite federal government initiatives dating back to 1990 to promote the establishment of competency-based standards in the professions. There remains a lack of clarity as to what is meant by the term 'competence', originating from the lack of consensus surrounding efforts to define effective management. There is also an underlying uncertainty about the viability of establishing generic managerial competencies in Australia. This paper examines the merits and de-merits of the competency-based approach to management, focusing on the need to develop an accepted framework within which to define competence. Following this, a review of the literature reveals a number of influential factors to be considered in determining managerial competence. This leads to the development of a proposed synthesizing framework of managerial competencies.
