Abstract: This paper is reporting on "generations in organizations" research in the Netherlands. This research has been carried out over the last 15 years. When it was started, literature study showed a lack of a coherent generational theory and a lack of scientific research methodology for generation research. It also showed that the interaction between generations has an important impact on the speed of the evolutionary processes in social systems.
