The study seeks to characterise management in Spain in general. It seeks to explain,
within a social cultural framework, how management in Spain differs in values and
structure from that in the United Kingdom. The basis of the study is empirical
evidence largely derived from interviews with managers practising in Spain.
The study concludes that there are underlying similarities in management values
across regions and' industries in Spain that are different from those prevalent in
Britain. Of special interest are the prioritisation of human individual values, the nature
of the authority structure and the principal methods of communication which
managers choose to employ. [Continues.]
