“… management problems basically have remained and will remain the same over time, and that their solutions differ less from period to period than from part of the world to part of the world, and even from country to country.”
Because management is always about people, it is part of the culture of the society in which it takes place. Culture is the collective programming of the mind which distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from another.
