Management research has a long tradition rooted in the early 20th century of the Western hemisphere, but as Hofstede has put it, “in a global perspective, US management theories contain several idiosyncrasies not necessarily shared elsewhere.” The rise of Japanese management and “postmodern” organizations in China and Korea has led to more diversity in management practice and research. Moreover, with the fall of the iron curtain, new developments in the management of the “East European capitalism” may also contribute to other and alternative approaches in management research. This e-book of the Baltic Journal of Management is a good test to confront research approaches and results from mainly young management researchers from East and West. It is based on selected papers presented at the Management Conference on Management Research in East and West in Kaunas, Lithuania in 2006. The articles of the e-book with three main fields of organizational and management research, relevant in East and West: the link between performance and ownership; organizational development, learning and knowledge creation and preservation; and motivation and commitment. They also address a broad variety of branches and types of organizations, banking sector, health care services, various industries; multinationals and their subsidiaries, but also family business.
