A brand new text in cross-cultural management which presents the key themes and issues in managing people and organisations across national and cultural boundaries.
The book offers a selective but broad view of current thinking on culture linked to management, organisation and communication. It also encourages the reader to apply theories and ideas to practice and to relate them to their own experience through various examples and mini-cases from the business world, and a range of practical activities.
The book has been written for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying cross-cultural and international management as part of specialist international business programmes, or generic business-related qualifications.
Both authors work at Nyenrode University (Nyenrode Business Universiteit), The Netherlands. Marie-Joelle Browaeys is Assistant Professor of Cross-Cultural Management at the Center for Marketing and Supply Chain Management; Roger Price is Associate Professor at the Center for Leadership and Personal Development.
