This path-breaking book liberates management thinking from a century of Western subjugation. It is a comparative exposition of culture and management styles in India, Japan, China and major Western countries. There is a need to protect and sustain each country’s identity and positive strengths in values while interlinking global business with cross cultural empathy. The book explores profiles of culture-management axis through secondary literature study in various languages of the East, empirical research conducted with nearly one thousand managers and 375 organizations in India. The effective management in the next millennium will be mission-based strategic integration of the team, combined with people-sensitive approach. In spite of growth of hi-tech, the emotional human issues will dominate the coming decades. Happiness and health in institutions will largely depend on successive sacrifice of greed and possessiveness in creation of wealth for human development. The meltdown in the US and its repercussions in the world are direct outcome of failure to learn these lessons. Already the world is witnessing acute consciousness of interdependence and universal linkages. This is the quintessence of Vedanta, Zen-Buddhism and Sufi order in the Eastern globe. West-dominated management technology must now synthesize with Eastern intuition and values. The book is divided into three parts: First part delves into East-West psyche; second part presents Integration-Affection Model as potential approach to effective Management. Third part shows the author’s successful applications of the approach in different organizations while working as Chief Executive or Consultant.

ÔPrimecz, Romani, and Sackmann provide managers and educators with a powerful framework that goes beyond simple categorization of national and cultural differences in business. Their framework of negotiated meaning systems, and the rich cases that illustrate the Òin-the-momentÓ experiences of global managers as they conduct business in culturally unfamiliar milieus provide managers and educators with a powerful tool for developing global managerial skills. This is a book every global manager and cross-cultural educator should have on his or her bookshelf.Õ Ð Mark E. Mendenhall, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, US ÔThis is a unique, alternative view of culture that has both practical and theoretical significance. The creative analysis of cases from around the world moves the field beyond the sophisticated stereotyping that can result from relying solely on cultural value dimensions to decode interactions. The cases address significant cross-cultural issues, providing useful lessons and richer perspectives on culture.Õ Ð Joyce Osland, San JosŽ State University, US ÔThis book is an excellent collection of practical and useful cases in cross-cultural management, with some that are very different from what we would call ÒtraditionalÓ cases in cross-cultural management. They are excellent teaching material with an introduction and a conclusion that show students and practitioners how meanings are negotiated in diverse and complex cross-cultural situations.Õ Ð Marie-Therese Claes, Louvain School of Management, Belgium ÔA fascinating book for both the diversity of cultures that are touched upon (from Asia and Africa to Europe and America) and the cultural analyses that are made of various management situations resulting from the transfer of management techniques across countries or the encountering of those embedded in different cultures.Õ Ð Philippe dÕIribarne, CNRS, France ÔA group of multidisciplinary authors from various countries and cultures bring rich experience to this volume. The focus on real-life situations offers a fresh perspective on culture in organizations and management through in-depth case studies including both academic and pedagogical sides. It addresses multi-level cross-cultural issues of international strategic importance for globalizing workplaces. This insightful book is excellent reading for practitioners as well as scholars and students interested in applications in the field of cross-cultural management.Õ Ð Cordula Barzantny, Toulouse Business School, France ÔThis volume offers an insightful introduction to qualitative field research aiming to understand the dynamics in intercultural business interactions. Based on the findings provided in ten rich cases from Asia, Europe, North Africa, USA and Latin America, the editors also propose strategies for more effective collaboration in challenging multiple-cultures contexts. The authors and editors have succeeded in transforming the field studies into cases that are stimulating and thought provoking readings, both for practitioners and students of cross-cultural management.Õ Ð Anne-Marie S¿derberg, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Based on the view that culture is dynamic and negotiated between actors, this groundbreaking book contains a collection of ten cases on cross-cultural management in practice. The cases draw on field research revealing challenges and insights from working across nations and cultures. Each case provides recommendations for practitioners that are developed into a framework for effective intercultural interactions as well as offering illustrations and insights on how to handle actual cross-cultural issues. This enriching book covers various topics including international collaborations across and within multinational companies, organizational culture in international joint ventures and knowledge transfer. Based on empirical fieldwork and qualitative analyses, this path-breaking book will appeal to graduate and postgraduate students in international management as well as practitioners.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,5 (A), International School of Management Dortmund (Private University), language: English, abstract: Introduction: Globalization in the 21st century Globalization has become one of the most discussed and controversial issues in the beginning of the 21st century. In terms of business, globalization is an opportunity to gain competitive advantage and market growth. Yet, what is associated with globalization? Why do many companies see themselves limited and sometimes even impotent trading globally and what are the critical success factors in global negotiations? According to the Future Commission of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung globalization is “... a complex set of overlapping and interacting processes at a global level.” The Future Commission continued noting that “... globalization is in connection with the growing international interrelatedness of markets, economies and companies.” (Future Commission of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, 1998:56). Hence, globalization is a world wide ongoing interhuman relationship process on different levels. They include social, private and business aspects. In the case of business terms, it should not be forgotten that globalization is not merely an increase of imports and exports. It implies the application of the principle of free markets in an international context. This dissertation contains the sources and explanations of why international negotiation is important to sustain competitive. It shall allow the reader to get an insight of why western and eastern cultures are often clashing together and thus prospecting business deals are cancelled. Moreover, the dissertation provides the reader with a general solution to overcome barriers in negotiating with foreigners and how important it is to gain not only technical and cognitive but also cultural skills. Understanding and accepting the differences in values and beliefs is crucial to be a global player. By getting a precise idea of the theoretical part, the author will endow the reader with a case study of Hewlett Packard (HP) and how the founders William (Bill) Hewlett and David (Dave) Packard have started business in a garage with merely two employees. Gradually after 60 years HP became the world class leader in printing devices. Furthermore, the study is showing the importance of the present Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Carly Fiorina who let HP into the 21st century. Carly Fiorina is considered to be the most powerful women in the United States of America (USA) (Hjelt, 2003:40-48)...

This important book brings together a set of original key contributions to knowledge management in developing economies. It encompasses a wide range of countries throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America as well as the transition economies of the former socialist countries in Eastern Europe. These carefully selected country case studies represent a broad range of issues in managing knowledge. They consider the way in which knowledge management processes and practices are influenced by local culture and institutions as well as by interaction with the broader international community. The need for an aggregated analytical approach in untangling the increasingly complex process through which knowledge processes are created, transferred and deployed is also highlighted. The book provides a strong nexus between theory and practice by offering solutions to problems such as: minimising knowledge leakage, creating knowledge-sharing cultures and promoting management learning. Presenting the latest research on intercultural knowledge management, this book will be warmly welcomed by researchers, students and lecturers with an interest in international management and knowledge management. Its strong focus on practitioner implications will provide international managers with invaluable suggestions on how to maximise knowledge sharing in international joint ventures and subsidiary operations.

If you are employed or studying cross-cultural management—what is culture and to what extent is it important in international business—then you will need to have this book, as it answers these questions through an exploration of the major theories that have been developed in the fields of business anthropology and international management. Dr. Velo also discusses the application of previously analyzed cultural frameworks as a basis for the elaboration of new ideas relating to current issues in organizational behavior. International organizations often deal with relationships between the employee as a socialized individual and the culture of his/her organization, managing in a globalized context, the development and management of cross-cultural teams, and negotiating intercultural with potential conflicts. This outstanding contribution to this field will help explain these relationships, questions, and possible conflicts in the world of cross-cultural management.
