Managing Cultural Differences
Routledge – 2011 – 570 pages
The international nature of modern Business means that individual and organizational success is no longer dependent solely on business acumen- our ability to understand, communicate and work with people in different countries and cultures around the world is more important than ever as more companies rely on their global reach to achieve the best profit and performance. For this reason, international business and cross-cultural management are key topics in undergraduate business, MBA and executive education programs worldwide as companies and institutions prepare current and future business leaders for the global marketplace.
"Managing Cultural Differences should be a required text for all students (graduate and undergraduate) who are preparing for careers in international business, foreign service or developmental change, in either the public or private sectors.
Having spent a good part of my professional career working both abroad (Malawi, India, and Indonesia) and in the United States (Indian Reservations and in Appalachia,) this book is of great value to anyone working or living in a cross cultural environment, both at home or abroad.
A five star publication."

"All in all, this is one of the most complete books about management in the modern global world. The cross-cultural dimension of the book makes it a must-read for any young or experienced manager working internationally out of corporate headquarters or working full time overseas."
