Management across Cultures Summary


Management across Cultures: Challenges and Strategies by Richard M. Steers (University of Oregon)

Management practices and processes frequently differ across national and regional boundaries. What may be acceptable managerial behaviour in one culture may be counterproductive or even unacceptable in another. As managers increasingly find themselves working across cultures, the need to understand these differences has become increasingly important. This book examines why these differences exist and how global managers can develop strategies and tactics to deal with them. The text draws on recent research in anthropology, psychology, and management, to explain the cultural and psychological underpinnings that shape managerial attitudes and behaviours, whilst introducing a learning model to guide in the intellectual and practical development of managers seeking enhanced global expertise. It offers user-friendly conceptual models to guide understanding and exploration of topics and summarizes and integrates the lessons learned in each chapter in applications-oriented 'Manager's Notebooks'. A companion website featuring comprehensive chapter-by-chapter PPT slides is available at www.cambridge.org/management_across_cultures.

Management across Cultures Reviews


'Richard Steers and his colleagues provide a comprehensive and useful analysis of the many areas where culture shapes and influences managerial behaviors and practices. The book should be an excellent resource for global managers who have to navigate their way through different countries and cultures.' Andrew Inkpen, Thunderbird School of Global Management
'All in all, the book offers a good overview about the challenges of international managers and broaches many interesting layers of intercultural management.' Nils Kruse, The Delta Intercultural Academy (dialogin.com)
"Richard Steers and his colleagues provide a comprehensive and useful analysis of the many areas where culture shapes and influences managerial behaviors and practices. The book should be an excellent resource for global managers who have to navigate their way through different countries and cultures." Andrew Inkpen, J. Kenneth and Jeannette Seward Chair in Global Strategy and Professor of Management, Thunderbird School of Global Management
"Unlike other books in this field, this work digs deeper into the underlying reasons for global differences, and this information can help managers be more effective in their work. Another of the book's strengths is the authors' inclusion of recent research on cultural anthropology, psychology, and management, which provides a much broader framework for understanding. Highly recommended." - G. Klinefelter, Argosy University, Choice
