As companies continue to grow globablly, more and more people are finding themselves in the uncharted waters of conducting business in a foreign country. Anyone who has been relocated to Thailand will quickly realize that when it comes to the Thais, the old rules of business do not necessarily apply. To blossom and prosper in Thailand, a foreign business person needs a keen understanding of the people, culture, and codes of conduct. In this revised edition of THAIS MEAN BUSINESS, Robert Cooper, anthropologist-turned-manager and author of the best-selling Culture Shock! Thailand continues his quest in helping foreigners in Thailand solve problems and increase profits. With deadly serious humour and brand new sections for today’s changing marketplace, he encourages the reader towards a middle path of hands-off management which he describes in its ideal form as “a hammock stretched between two palm trees”.
