Book Description

October 23, 2011 0273732951 978-0273732952 2

Managing effectively across national and cultural boundaries is critical to the success of today’s organizations, given the global environment of business and increasing diversity of workforces.  A keen awareness and a high degree of cross-cultural competence in management are therefore key to the career success of both present and aspiring managers/professionals.

Understanding Cross-Cultural Management explores the key themes and issues in one of the most challenging and fascinating areas of organizational life, and enables you to sharpen your insights and practical skills. It offers a selective but broad view of classic and contemporary thinking on cultural management and encourages you to apply theories and ideas to practice - and to relate them to your own experience - through various examples and cases from the business world, and a range of practical activities.

From the Back Cover

Managing effectively across national and cultural boundaries is critical to the success of today’s organizations, given the global environment of business and increasing diversity of workforces.  A keen awareness and a high degree of cross-cultural competence in management are therefore key to the career success of both present and aspiring managers/professionals.

Understanding Cross-Cultural Management explores the key themes and issues in one of the most challenging and fascinating areas of organizational life, and enables you to sharpen your insights and practical skills. It offers a selective but broad view of classic and contemporary thinking on cultural management and encourages you to apply theories and ideas to practice - and to relate them to your own experience - through various examples and cases from the business world, and a range of practical activities.

A number of features will help you to succeed in your studies or career, including:

·        Cross-cultural concepts, which explain key ideas from leading theorists, thinkers and practitioners.

·        Case studies, dilemmas and points for reflection which enable you to reflect internally and interact externally.

·         ‘Spotlights’ in every chapter which briefly illustrate the concepts being described.

·        Mini-cases with questions giving consistent application of theory to practice.

·        Activities at the end of each chapter, as well as at the end of each of the three Parts, provide a broader and more integrative perspective on the material in question, thereby encouraging you to develop your cross-cultural management skills.

The book has been written for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as practising managers and professionals, who are studying cross-cultural and international management as part of either specialist international business programmes or general business-related qualifications.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book of knowledge February 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book I ordered was solely for class. I opened it up and was not excited for what was to come. The material is not thrilling, but educational. The material you need to know is in there, but getting to it isnt a fun process. Recommended for students who can read a book that isnt gripping as long as they make it to the information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another alternative should be sought October 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
Although the information contained within it is educational, that is an expectation of all textbooks. This textbook does a poor job of being concise, on top of that sentence topics tend to jump arround. Furthermore, my class and I believe this book to be a waste of paper. If this book is to be used in class it should not be followed to the letter, rather key points should be summarized and presented using a more benefitial media.
