ABSTRACT
Managers play a key role in the transformation of economic structures in transitional countries. In this paper the special case of the GDR is considered and the question raised in which way managers were shaped by the rigorously structured social and economic conditions in the state-run industry of socialistic countries and how this influenced the capability to master the problems of the new economic system they entered after 1989. The paper points out the differences between management behaviour under these preconditions and under circumstances of a market economy. East German managers are more oriented towards internal structures and procedures, i.e. to the production and to the employees, while West German managers are oriented to both sides, to the internal side of the firm and outside to the market and the customers. Of the East German managers those have been successful who soon adapted the western management practice of this kind of bifocal orientation.
