About the Book
This is the first handbook to provide an overview of the major research perspectives in cross-cultural management and to look at how they can be applied to real-world situations. The volume is distinctive in bringing together perspectives previously considered independently, placing the work of management experts alongside contributions from leading cross-cultural psychologists, sociologists and economists. The editors have consciously selected cutting-edge contributors from a variety of countries.
The structure of the handbook reflects a systems feedback model of management. Beginning with the influence of national cultures on managerial and employee behaviour, the volume goes on to cover strategy, structure, human resources, motivation, rewards and leadership behaviour, interpersonal processes, and corporate culture and values. This allows the reader to see the issues within a dynamic and systematic context. The relationships between the chapters are elucidated by commentary from the editors.
This authoritative volume will be welcomed by managers, researchers and students seeking insight into cross-cultural issues and problems in and across organisations.
