Abstract: This paper offers a cultural analysis of Latin America organisational models. In order to address this issue, the concepts of culture and modernity are discussed. Additionally, this paper briefly analyses some key problems in Latin America, particularly its modernisation process and its relationship with culture. Finally, organisational models, focusing especially on their social construction, transfer and re-appropriation, with a view to questioning their cultural relevance and contribution to organisational and social development are discussed. This paper concludes with some remarks on modernity, culture and the future avenues of research on organisational models in Latin America.
