Regimented experience in the military is believed to train internal managers in the military to focus their attention on internal hierarchical orders with relatively lesser attention given to considerations of outside stakeholders. Data from 102 managers working in U.S. military were used to empirical test the impact of stakeholder considerations on action orientation. Findings show military managers’ perceptions of stakeholders’ impact their intentions to act. The study also found the perceived strength of the stakeholder attributes had a direct relationship to both intention to take action and timeliness of intended response. The paper concludes with implications for future research.
