In order to better manage intercultural conflicts, i.e. to manage diversity, this investigation provides knowledge about the cultural influence on conflict behaviour. On the basis of culture, conflict and business research, practical implementations are shown, as managing intercultural conflict constructively means managing cultural-based conflict differences effectively.
