This paper explores possible differences amongst two prominent generations in India by investigating managerial values, managerial practices and the possible impact of emerging managerial values on managerial practices. The findings of this study extend previous research on managerial values in emerging economies. The study provides evidence to suggest that young managers in India emphasize different managerial values and practices, and that managerial values have a significant impact on managerial practices. Implications of the results for scholars and practitioners are considered and future research directions identified.
