A very good and structured book on the topic of management across cultures. It is the perfect add on to the classic theory teaching books in intercultural management. Highly reccomended!
Very thought provoking discussions
very good book with in depth analysis and case studies supplementing additional parts of the negotiation aspects
not adopted as main book because no teaching resources available
Whilst this is a useful book for supplementary information for my students, particularly the chapter relating to Hong Kong, we are using a more generic book on management/leadership that covers more on theories/leadership styles. Managing Across Cultures is useful for students to put this into their local context.
This is a well structured text allowing students to gain knowledge of cultural practices and policies in different countries and provides scope to compare and contract. The illustrations are useful and thoroughly appreciated and sourced by students.
It is a very useful contribution to the field of management across cultures. Because of its structure, I consider this book as a recommended reading. In my course, we follow theoretical path and this book is structured by geographic approach.
This textbook provides an overview of the economic, political and cultural impact on management in a number of clusters of countries. Therefore, it can be recommended as a supplemental resource dealing with the topic "Doing business in...".
This is a very good general introduction to the 'culture' dimension of management.
This comprehensive text provides excellent coverage of HRM developments across a range of countries. Each entry covers societal, macroeconomic and organisational characteristics of the countries being considered before key HRM topics are reviewed. This consistency of approach enables students to compare and contrast developments across societies in a clear, accessible way. Five integrative case studies provide scope to apply and develop understanding of key concepts and the text opens and closes with coverage of a number of critical and emerging issues relating to the management of people in an increasingly globalised world. Students at senior undergraduate and postgraduate level will find this to be a clear, lucid and valuable text for their studies in international HRM.
