Management worldwide : the impact of societal culture on organizations around the globe by David John Hickson( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Societies obviously have distinct dress codes and favourite foods, but they also have very different attitudes to age and time, power and status, 'masculinity' and individualism, directness, uncertainty and loyalty, which shape how things are done at work. Even something that sounds like a 'Yes' to a foreigner may actually be a polite way of saying 'No'." "To help managers, students of management and organizations to open their minds to the ways in which managers operate and business is conducted in different societies, David Hickson and Derek Pugh describe how things work in the countries of seven major cultural and economic groups around the world: Anglo-Saxon, Latin, northern European, eastern European, Asian, Arab and the Developing World." "Later chapters in this uniquely comprehensive coverage provide profiles of the internationally minded manager and practical guidance for expatriates (on pre-assignment training, culture shock, ethical dilemmas and the return to homebase). The book concludes by looking at convergence - the factors that may be slowly overcoming local differences and forging a common international management style."--Jacket
