Editorial: Proceedings of The 5th International Critical Management Studies Conference, 2007.


The paper presents the results of a comparative research in Romania and Russia, regarding the management practices. The interviews focused on the relevance of the basic Western management theories and practices in local socio-cultural context. We used a qualitative method – the interview. More than 20 managers were interviewed in each country. The managers were asked to evaluate how classical management theories fit to local culture.
The main characteristics of the social and economical context is summarized in both countries. This context is related with previous evaluations of organizational cultures. Some cultural researchers evaluated quite similar Romanian and Russian cultures (Hofstede, 2001). Other authors (Trompenaars, Hampden-Turner, 1998, Sucala, Kostina, 2006) identified significant differences between Romania and Russia’s organizational culture.
The results expressed divergences in management practices considered suitable in local context. Criticism to some western management theories and practices was identified in both countries.
