It will not be long before professionals represent one-fifth of the work force. Yet,three quarters of them,the so-called salaried professionals-accountants,engineers,doctors,scientists,architects,computer scientists,and teachers-often have unique difficulties integrating into organizations,thus creating a special problem for managers. In The Clash of Cultures,Joseph Raelin presents a blueprint of managerial strategies to alleviate the tension. He details the contrasts between corporate and professional cultures and explores their roots,including differences in educational background,socialization,values,vocational interests,work habits,and outlook. His mediation strategies are designed to minimize and manage conflict before it erupts into a major managerial problem must reading for professionals and those managing them.
