9780132722209: Managing Across Cultures

This Book is about opportunities, threats, challenges and possibilities inherent in managing across cultures. International responsibilities and contacts are increasingly widespread through companies, without even the need for international travel. The need to appreciate and be able to manage cultural differences, both in the home office and abroad, is becoming more and more a part of everyone's job. Each culture has its own particular blindspots and insights - and knowledge of these can be leveraged for enhanced personal and organisational effectiveness. The book pulls together and integrates a vast literature in crosscultural management, both academic and anecdotal, in a way that is useful to both MBA students and managers. It is based on the authors' vast experience of teaching and research in the area.

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.
