journal contributionposted on 06.06.2017, 02:44 by Petrovic-Lazarevic, Sonja
The aim of the paper is to highlight the prevailing top leadership styles in the Yugoslav Building and Construction Industry (BCI), known as an industry that significantly influences economic development of the country. Since Yugoslavia (YU) is the latest former East European country to fully enter the transition from a self-managed to a market economy, this industry faces a demand to quickly develop global competitiveness. One way to gain competitive advantage is to have top management styles supported by social protection programs (SPP). Since this is not the case in YU at present, leadership in the BCI struggles with many challenges that slow down the transition process.
