Abstract

The ideas of management in modern enterprises are changing. Facing fundamental technological innovations, a growing pluralization of lifestyles in the "postmodern modernity", and a decaying cultural importance of the paradigm of work, management tries to withdraw classical power and control strategies. The answers to the given challenges are the acceptance of self-organization, the acknowledgement of the cultural diversity within the firm, and the request for discursiveness of managing. These are the major subjects of the conception of "organizational culture". This essay picks up the protagonists' point of view and underlines the postmodern impact of the new management. The changing ideas of management are often underestimated in organizational and industrial sociology, although they are — as it will be pointed out — to be taken seriously. Not only management but also the disciplines of social sciences will have to cope with new questions.
