For example, Hofstede (1980) describes Turkey as being ‘medium high’ on the uncertainty avoidance index. He describes how young democracies (which he defines as being those which have developed their forms of government since the First World War, such as Turkey) tend to show higher uncertainty avoidance than older democracies. This notion fits with Ataturk’s reforms, which coincided with a Turkish republic salvaged out of the Ottoman Empire in the years following the First World War. A Romanized alphabet, Western dress, and a society no longer founded on religion but on secular values, were among the sweeping changes that patriotic, forward-thinking Turks were expected to embrace.

It is true that managers are often bureaucratically appointed and thus have a mandate to get things done in their part of the organization. It is equally evident that in some cultures, inviolable respect is invested in leaders. But as Raelin (2004) reminds us, managers: …don’t have to be ‘hired hands’ … who are condemned to a life of unimaginatively carrying out corporate goals or endorsing the status quo. Managers [or indeed, we might add, non-managers] are hardly excluded from leadership. What might be most impressive about the manager is not taking the reins but supporting others to take them as the situation warrants.

All this leads to a central conundrum of the book. Given that, at several levels, the high expectations invested in management development often remain unfulfilled, why is it a subject/activity that continues to command such intense interest from scholars and practitioners alike? In this chapter we have begun to identify why management development is such a hot topic and briefly reviewed what current academic research tells us about management development policies and practices. To deepen our understanding of this arena and to address the above conundrum, we have proposed a multiple discourse approach.
