    The Significance of Age When the Manager is Young and the Subordinates Are Much Older2008In: International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management, ISSN 1447-9524, E-ISSN 1447-9575, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 77-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to present some results of an interview study of younger managers and older subordinates in Sweden. An aim of the study was to increase the understanding of the significance of age in working life and the relations between younger managers and older subordinates. Data have been collected through semi-structured interviews with 23 younger managers who had experience of managing subordinates who were 20 years older or more. Furthermore, 19 older subordinates who had experience of being managed by managers who were at least 20 years younger were interviewed. Male and female interviewees have been selected from different kinds of organizations, lines of business and management levels. The results showed that many younger managers stressed the importance of listening to older subordinates, both in order to make them feel involved in the daily work and in order to utilize their extensive experience and knowledge. Most of the older subordinates were satisfied with the way they were being managed but some told about situations when the younger managers carried out changes too fast, were insecure or concerned about their prestige. A conclusion was that both younger and older people have much to learn from each other and that generally age was not seen as being of determinant importance in management.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to present some results of an interview study of younger managers and older subordinates in Sweden. An aim of the study was to increase theunderstanding of relations between younger managers and older subordinates. Data have been collected through semi-structured interviews with 23 younger managers who had experience of managing subordinates who were 20 years older or more. Furthermore, 19 older subordinates who had experience of being managed by managers who were at least 20 years younger were interviewed. Male and female interviewees have been selected from different kinds of organisations, lines of business and management levels. The results showed that many younger managers and older subordinates perceived that age generally did not matter but they recommended age-mixed teams because of different experience and knowledge. However, most of the interviewees lived an age-segregatedprivate life and socialised mainly with people of their own age. A conclusion was that some of the younger managers’ insecurity in managing older people and a possible reluctance to employ them may be a result of the fact that some younger managers do not know older people well, that ‘like attracts like’ and that there is a general age segregation in society.
