The growth of the information technology sector remains strong, and the demand for qualified workers within it remains high. A case study survey was conducted to identify many of the values perceived as meaningful by the high technology workers. Furthermore, a descriptive and ethnographical overview of the culture of the high technology industry was identified. Ten management principles were offered that enable the postmodern organization to meet these challenges. Finally, several examples of how some high technology companies are currently coping with challenges and achieving success are offered. Dr. Carolyn Salerno, School of Advanced Studies.
