“A well-written text that highlights the tenets of international management in their cultural realities. Current, focused, and grounded in the importance of understanding the diverse business and management practices…to be successful in today’s global environment.” --Jim Giermanski, Belmont Abbey College and Powers International Inc.
“The presentation is better than anything I have come across elsewhere. It is easy to understand; is grounded in research; and, probably rings true to anyone who has worked in a significantly multicultural environment or who has experienced business transactions in a foreign country.” — Tom Tafolla, National Hispanic University
“I have no doubt that students will relate very well to the issues and concepts covered. All students of international management will agree with me that this is a must read.” --Braimoh Oseghale, Fairleigh Dickinson University
“Without a doubt, the author does an outstanding job of bringing many of the concepts to life with the use of countless, but interesting stories, examples, and illustrations that make the book interesting and applicable to the real vs. theoretical world!” —James Woodrow, Vanguard University
“A good background to engage students in some meaningful discussions concerning cultural differences and how to respond to them. The mix of concepts with culturally-relevant stories makes it an enjoyable and informative read.” --Nolan Argyle, Valdosta State University
In today's culturally diverse environment this book provides a comprehensive approach to recognising and understanding how culture has a significant impact on organisations. Managers would find this book a useful tool in conceptualising how countries approach their work.
