|Description:||RMEE (Review of Management and Economical Engineering) first Management Conference: "Twenty Years After - How Management Theory Works"|
|Location:||Cluj-Napoca, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania|
|Subject:||As many authors observed transition societies from communism to capitalism offer unique settings for social research. Eastern Europe become a living laboratory in organizational transformation within a context of profound institutional change (Child & Czegledy, 1996). The dynamic and dramatic events that took place in East of Europe still have potential from this point of view. Far from being the proclaimed "end of history" (Fukuyama, 1992), the demise of communism represented a landmark in the management theory. But the benefits of the junction of the Western management theory with the Eastern social, cultural and historical background are still to be expected. In the institutionalized management conferences, the Eastern scholars are still marginal. There is no management theory originating in the post communist context. But management was done during communism and transition to capitalism. Performant management was done even in communism. The conference main topic is focused on how management theory (or theories) was adapted, verified or denied in the post communist countries.
