ABSTRACT
The management of individuals in different cultural contexts has often failed to address how the implicit cultural assumptions embedded in well-known managerial programs may conflict with dominant cultural values. This paper presents three possible conditions that may occur when the values embedded in a given management approach meet the values held within a specific cultural context The case of TQM implementation in Valvex, a Polish valve manufacturer, illustrates these three conditions and ways in which managers can address them.
