Nepotism in management is an extremely sensitive and touchy issue in American business. It has implications not only for management development, promotion, and control, and not only for the image and public relations of business, but also for executives who have, or would like to have, relatives in management positions. Nepotism has been criticized mostly as being unprofessional. Its opponents have claimed that the rise of an intellectual, analytical approach to management spells the decline and ultimate extinction of nepotism. However, nepotism is alive and on the march in American business and will continue to remain deeply ingrained in all industries simply because it pays to be related to the boss.
