It will not be long before professionals represent one-fifth of the labor force. Yet,three-quarters of these workers who are "salaried" often have unique difficulties adapting to their organizations,thus creating difficulties for their struggling managers. The Clash of Cultures analyzes the conflict between managers and professions by examining the corporate culture to which managers are committed,and the professional culture through which professionals are socialized. The author produces a detailed blueprint for specific managerial strategies to alleviate the clash of cultures. His suggestions are succinct and documented by concrete examples and explanations. Management does not have to tolerate the clash any longer. It can help shape organizations that ultimately reward both professional accomplishment and managerial proficiency.
