Abstract/Index

The aim of this paper is to find evidence of managers’ generation effects on a component of resistance to change: the cognitive rigidity. We analyzed data collected during 88 interviews to managers of 16 social security organizations that were transformed by law from public into private entities. These organizations needed to have managers with a new idea of their responsibility. Findings suggest a positive relationship of cognitive rigidity with (old) generation and (high) tenure and a negative relationship with a heterogeneous experience.
