The attention of the researchers is focused on strategies developed by the management and the workers in the process of adapting to the market reforms. Referring to Weberian socio-cultural categories in case-studies of the formal/informal and horizontal/vertical organization of work a successful combination of contractual labour relations with trust relations was discovered. It proved to be a successful transformation-strategy for private enterprises in present day Russia.
