Abstract: It is clear that the management of organisation is undergoing a paradigm shift. Globally, over the past five decades, there has been a growing trend towards more participative working relationships and practices. The system of hierarchy and the distance power culture, which is very strong in Indian culture, finds itself being challenged by the notion of collaborative and team-based organisations.
