In this paper, we tried to link the concepts of generation and intergenerational conflict to the concept of organizational culture. The main research question is: to what extent do generations differ with respect to perceived current and desired organizational culture. Furthermore, we examined whether differences in organizational culture between generations are associated with intergenerational conflict. To answer these research questions, a survey was conducted among civil servants from a local government. The results of the quantitative analyses are interpreted in light of the institutional context of local government.
