This study reports the changing perceptions of work goals in a transitional society. Mongolia embraced market ideology in the decade of the 1990s after 70 years as a centrally planned economic system. This study of 208 managers points to interesting directions for many similar countries in central Asia undertaking deliberate and wide-ranging changes. This paper departs from the traditional research approach in terms of its context specificity and in the recognition that no study of this nature has been previously undertaken.
