Transforming Management in Central and Eastern Europe

This chapter examines enterprise-level management restructuring which seeks to raise productivity and product quality to western standards. Four major themes are identified. The first is trends in management strategies at the enterprise level, especially the extent to which managers began to respond to market signals in place of bureaucratic requirements. The second is decentralization, management autonomy, and the emergence of new managerial functions. The third is interfirm relationships. These may be governed by contract, structural linkages, or informal understandings; each has different implications for enterprise management behaviour and for the character of the economic system as a whole. The fourth is the extent to which management developed as a professional group. This involves the ‘depoliticization’ of management and the development of managerial professionalism, with relevant values, skills, and behaviour.

Keywords:   enterprise management, management restructuring, managerialism, interfirm relationships
