    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to consider the transformation experience of contemporary Turkey, and to provide an introduction to the special issue and a review of the papers in the JMD special issue. The paper portrays changes in Turkish business and management practices in recent years. The paper argues that given the dynamic nature of Turkish economy, change is not an option but a required path for transformation and survival. Turbulence and anxieties, sometimes inevitably, distract or at best re-orient the speed of change and transition. The paper stimulates further work by management scholars to develop new perspectives and research agenda that will advance knowledge of the business and management practices in emerging countries.
