Objective: Management is one of the most important aspects of human capital in organizations; so investigation of effective abilities in this job is very important. In the current research, we try to predict criterion variable (information process dimensions of managers’ role breadth) by using General Aptitude Test Battery (GATB). 
Method: We used Professional Managerial Position Questionnaire (PMPQ) to evaluate role breadth. Also, General Aptitude Test Battery (GATB) has been applied to evaluate cognitive abilities. This research is a kind of relationship research. 86 managers in 3 industrial companies are studied. This sample consists of 59 managers from a public company in kerman, 16 ones from a semi-private Co. in Tehran and 11 ones from a semi- private Co. in isfahan. These persons were male and had been selected randomly from a population of managers that had formal job description and at least one year tenure. 

Results: There is a meaningful relation between dimensions of job’s information process and managers’ cognitive abilities (P≤ 0.001). Also abilities consist of numerical reasoning, computation and form matching, predict information process ability of managers (P£ 0.01). 
Conclusions: One of the most important advantages of these tests is using them for job decision makings. These decisions consist of some aspects such as employee selection, succession planning, classification and job evaluation.
