This paper explores the Greek management context from various perspectives such as the national culture distinctive characteristics (i.e., dominant societal values) and the findings of research conducted on the Greek management context since the early 1980s. The overall conclusion is that Greek management is influenced by both the European/global business environment and the national/local distinctive characteristics and societal values. Based on the existing literature, it was found that until the end of 2000s, Greek and Western management co-existed in a delicate balance. What remains to be seen are the devastating results of the prolonged economic crisis that has affected not only Greece, but all Southern European countries. The balance is now disturbed and we are only at the beginning of our understanding of this new reality, not only in management and the workplace but in also in our everyday lives.
