Ion Voicu Sucala. Managers of TransitionóLeadership in Post-Communist Romanian Companies. Europe-Asia Studies, 67:4, pp. 652-670, 2015.

Abstract: The article presents the perspectives of managers as part of the Romanian organisational elite on the
communist regime and on the transition period, and the values and principles that informed their behaviour as managers in each period. For the first decade after the end of communist rule, managers were drawn mainly from the second level of management of the state-owned enterprises of communist times. As a group they had
been selected and formed in late communism. Among the main advantages of this social group were that they demonstrated considerable survival capacity, ideological neutrality and an ability to manoeuvre in a turbulent environment. On the other hand they had to adapt to their new environment drawing on the skills and mentality they had developed under the old regime. The research employed a qualitative method based on the
interpretation of conversations between managers and students.

Keywords: Romania, organisational elites, post-communism
