Abstract

This article:

• sets out the attempts to bring about strategic change at Timex in Dundee over a 50 year association with the city;

• discusses the role of leadership, management style and human resource management in bringing about culture change:

• explains the problems of Timex as a failure of the US and home‐based management to think strategically and think culturally.
