Abstract

The article analyzes Kazakhstan management practices from the perspective of the value-rational approach, touching upon the typical mistakes of the managers. It should be noted that the dominant factor affecting the specificity of management, is the mentality of the nation. The population of Kazakhstan emphasizes communicative values such as hospitality, good relationships with family, friends, neighbors, colleguas to the detriment of instrumental values as personal succes, financial independence, etc. Kazakh people are mainly ''focused" not on themselves, but on circle of contacts and accepted patterns of behavior. So, unadapted version of "blind copying" of Western management theory is a great danger, though attracted ease of implementation. Formalized ethics in organization becomes the basis of rigid social control, pressure and negative authorization. The work describes the management model in the countries of the former USSR, most important elements of the relationship between the employees and the organization. The author considers contempropary ways of personnel recruitment in the organizations and stresses that the creation of a private, national management system, based on the integration of features of the national mentality, using aspects of global management experience is very essential point.
