Culture's consequences : international differences in work-related values by Geert Hofstede( Book )

35 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important book is based on a monumental study of the sales subsidiaries of a major multinational corporation which operates in 39 countries in the world. Since, in all countries, the respondents do the same work ... and since the formal organization structure is the same everywhere, the important differences found in work attitudes and values can be ascribed to cultural differences among the countries. The author found four major dimensions for classifying cultures across the world: (i) power distance ... (ii) uncertainty avoidance ... (iii) individualism ... (iv) masculinity. ... The author also proposes some interesting theories to explain how cultures come to be as they are, which combine climate, economic development and historical process."--The Good Book Guide for Business "One of the most significant comparative organizational studies to date."--Industrial and Labor Relations Review "Important scientific books may be classified according to two types. ... The second type includes those books which people like to have close at hand and consult for reference. There is little doubt that this book belongs to the second category."--Journal of Management Studies "What the author has done has been to analyze questionnaire results obtained in some 40 different countries, applied to employees of a large multinational American company, and to use the results for extracting dimensions along which to compare these different cultures, and then to evaluate and discuss the resulting groupings. ... The book is full of interesting and important findings. ... It should certainly be studied by anyone in the field."--New Society
Culture's consequences : comparing values, behaviors, institutions, and organizations across nations by Geert Hofstede( Book )

37 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second Edition of this classic work, first published in 1981 and an international bestseller, explores the differences in thinking and social action that exist among members of more than 50 modern nations. Geert Hofstede argues that people carry "mental programs" which are developed in the family in early childhood and reinforced in schools and organizations, and that these programs contain components of national culture. They are expressed most clearly in the different values that predominate among people from different countries. Geert Hofstede has completely rewritten, revised and updated Cultures Consequences for the twenty-first century, he has broadened the book's cross-disciplinary appeal, expanded the coverage of countries examined from 40 to more than 50, reformulated his arguments and a large amount of new literature has been included. The book is structured around five major dimensions: power distance; uncertainty avoidance; individualism versus collectivism; masculinity versus femininity; and long term versus short-term orientation. --Publisher

42 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie unsere Herkunft das Denken, Fühlen und Handeln beeinflusst: Die Polarisierung der Welt ist heute bedenklicher als am Ende des Kalten Krieges, trotz freiem Handel und digitaler Technik, durch die eine globale Verbundenheit zustande kam, von der Science Fiction & ndash; Autoren vor 50 Jahren nicht einmal träumten. Woran liegt es aber, dass Menschen getrennte Wege gehen, wenn doch Kooperation so klar in jedermanns Interesse liegt? Sind wir eine Spezies, die dazu verdammt ist, sich permanent misszuverstehen und in Konflikt miteinander zu geraten? Sie finden die Antworten in diesem Buch. Dieser Atlas für kulturelle Werte basiert auf über 30jähriger Forschung über mehr als 70 Länder. Gleichzeitig beschreibt das Buch eine revolutionäre Theorie des kulturellen Relativismus und seiner Anwendungsmöglichkeiten in verschiedenen Berufen

Uncommon sense about organizations : cases, studies, and field observations by Geert Hofstede( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hofstede's lifetime of research into organizational behavior has yielded a considerable number of studies using a variety of methodologies. Uncommon Sense About Organizations assembles 17 of the author's superlative articles and case studies, grouping them within three main themes: the impact of jobs on people, power and control in organizations, and studies in training sessions. Hofstede further divides and examines these subjects in relation to their sizes, categorizing studies of the individual or small group as belonging to organizational psychology, for example, while attributing the study of a single, larger, and more complex organization to the discipline of organizational anthropology. The combination of the author's careful and informed scrutiny and his thoughtful juxtaposition of these topics reveals organizational realities that might not otherwise be discerned." "Encompassing such wide-ranging disciplines as sociology, psychology, and anthropology, Uncommon Sense About Organizations is a tour de force of behavioral science research."--Jacket

Futures for work : a book of original readings by Jaap Boersma( Book )

17 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred years ago, on the first of November 1878, the first, partly elected, workers representation within a Dutch industrial concern was installed. This took place at the Nederlandsche Gist- en Spiritusjabriek which is now known, since amalgamating in 1967 with Brocades, Stheeman & Pharmacia, as Gist-Brocades. The centennial of workers representation occurs at a time in which the debate about the relationship between man and his work has reached a new height. The role of social pioneer that, in the history of industry, fell to this concern, now creates for us a twofold obliƯ gation: In the first instance to give due honour, after 100 years, to the pioneer ofthose days, J.C. Van Marken and to commemorate hirn in contemporary fashion: the first chapter of this book, published on the occasion ofthe centennial, is devoted to the life and work of our illustrious precursor. Secondly we fee! that it is in the spirit of pioneership to look forward and thereby direct ourselves primarily to the future of work. To this end, the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management in Brussels formulated some pertinent questions which were then laid before a number of prominent writers and social thinkers in Holland and elsewhere. This book contains their responses. VIII FOREWORD We did not ask the authors to look into teacups or to tell the future from the stars

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book depicts the world's national and ethnic cultures in an unprecedented way. It is based on analyses of all publicly available large databases that provide cultural indicators about modern nations: the World Values Survey, the United Nations Statistics Division, the world Health Organization and many academic studies. The author explains some of the main cultural differences between modern nations and ethnic groups across the globe. The readers will understand why human societies differ on many important indicators and what culture has to do with these: speed of economic development, happiness, tolerance of diversity, religiousness, national pride, educational achievement, difficult integration of immigrants, suicides rates, gender equality, violent crime, competition for women and sexual norms, adolescent fertility and HIV rates, corruption, rule of law, road death tolls, punctuality."--Page 4 of cover

Interkulturelle Zusammenarbeit Kulturen - Organisationen - Management by Geert Hofstede( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied
