Angesichts dieser Entwicklung rückt Birgit Klein die Rekrutierungsprozesse für das Manage-ment in den Fokus. Das Personalauswahlverfahren hat unmittelbaren Einfluss darauf, welche Denkstile rekrutiert werden und welchen Stellenwert kulturelle, ethische und wertbasierte Haltungen haben. Daraus leitet sie folgende Fragen ab: Gelten kulturelle und moralische Ka-tegorien auf dem Weg zu Führungspositionen? Sind sie tatsächlich ähnlich wichtig wie bei-spielsweise Erfolg und Durchsetzungsfähigkeit? Und wie kann sichergestellt werden, dass eine Führungskraft auch zu den Unternehmenswerten passt?
Vor diesem Hintergrund beschreibt die Autorin die Chancen und Potenziale eines kulturba-sierten Personalauswahlverfahrens und entwickelt einen Analyserahmen, der auch kulturelle Haltungen und Wertgrundsätze berücksichtigt. Wie dies gelingt, zeigt sie in einer empirischen Studie im Rahmen des Führungsnachwuchs-Recruitings der Siemens AG. Dabei wird insbe-sondere auf tieferliegende Identitätsmerkmale von Führungsnachwuchskräften verwiesen, die für Führungsaufgaben mit weitreichender Verantwortung konstitutiv sind.
