This paper studies how German businesses are managed, focusing on the personalities and work styles of German managers. The paper begins with a general discussion of the present German economy -- including the recent downturn -- and the negative impact of reunification. Then the paper assesses German management culture, which it says prides itself on customer service and product quality. The paper also analyzes how managers in Germany -- most of whom are men -- rise to positions of power within their companies. This "man's world" is a large focus of the author's assessment. Other influences the paper examines are education levels and the role of labor unions.
From the Paper:"The new government is fairly leftist, combining the Social Democrats with the German "Green" party. Schroeder, in one of his first pronouncements, made it clear that he was going to create a plan whereby business and labor would come to some sort of agreement, including a revision of the current tax codes, and perhaps a reduction in the very excessive number of paid vacation and holidays that German workers now receive (by far the most generous in all of Europe). "With only the basic frame work of new tax regulations hinted at, already critics are complaining that these new regulations would place an unfair burden on family-owned businesses, and hurt the economy in general. Before leaving office, Kohl did get some measures passed, such as cutting pensions and sick benefits. Schroeder seeks to restore these and find some new revenues elsewhere."
