Mack and his senior team undertake initiatives in order to transform the culture and working style of the firm from individualistic to team-oriented. The case provides detailed information about Morgan Stanley's existing culture and systems as well as the kinds of changes that it hopes to make. Morgan Stanley views the human resource management systems as a tool for attaining strategic objectives.
