Abstract

The aim of this research is to quantitatively explore the role of intrapreneurial behavior and psychological factors on the individual performance of middle managers in Nigerian medium enterprises (MEs).The issue of intrapreneurial behavior and individual performance is barely studied, specifically as regards to medium enterprise middle managers.The deplorable performance of individual managers and employees has remained a fundamental concern for MEs not only in Nigeria.Survey method was adopted for the study in which 41 usable questionnaires were collected from MEs in Kano state of Nigeria which is one of the study strata using the stratified random method of sampling.The model produces seven factors to be used as determinants of individual performance of middle managers in Nigerian MEs. The instruments reliability and validity were therefore, scrutinized through expert panel and the data sample was analyzed using SPSS v24. Finally, the result proves the instruments reliability and validity for the adapted constructs in the pilot study.Hence, future studies can extend this finding by establishing relationship between the study variables.
