From the Back Cover:

Managing Across Cultures

 

Susan C. Schneider and Jean-Louis Barsoux

 

 

As more and more companies have a global reach, managing cultural differences is increasingly a part of every job. This book demonstrates how culture affects management practice, from organizational structure to strategy and human resource management. Drawing upon evidence from the authors¿ research, it encourages managers to reconsider, explore and transfer alternative practices across national boundaries. As well as providing an insight into other cultures, it will also provide readers with an increased awareness of their own culture.

In the second edition of this book, work has been developed on the impact of national culture on effective management and of utilizing differences to create competitive advantage. Using tools of observation, questioning and interpretation, the book challenges assumptions and encourages critical reflection on the influences of culture in business.

 

 

Key features:

  • New and updated case studies and examples interspersed throughout
  • Strong theoretical foundations are linked to highly practical application
  • Expanded coverage of geographical perspectives and 'virtual teams'
  • Improved design, layout and 'sign-posting' of content
 

 

Managing Across Cultures

will appeal both to managers and executives working in an international business environment, as well as to students on a growing number of MBA and other undergraduate, postgraduate and post-experience courses.
