Effective ways of handling events in Central and Eastern Europe

Kruzela, Pavla LU (2000) In Social Science Information
Abstract
Five hundred and sixty-one managers in Central and Eastern Europe were asked how much they relied on each of eight sources of quidance in handling eight relatively routine work events. A previous study indicated particularly strong reliance on one's own experience and training in the Czech Republic and Hungary. Managers from Poland and Slovakia relied more on superiors, while in Romania and Bulgaria proportionally greater account was taken of "belief that are widespread in my country as to what is right". These analyses are extended by examining respondents' rating of how well each work event was handled. Overall, most events were seens as best handled on the basis of one's own experience and training. However, substantial divergence... (More)

However, substantial divergence between the more northerly and more sourtherly nations were again found, and these are discussed in terms of locally differing circumstances. (Less)
