Handbook of Cross-Cultural Management Research by Peter B. Smith

Book Description

Most researchers in management retain a primary focus on their specialist topic and neglect the question of whether broader cultural factors impinge upon the way in which their topic finds expression in different parts of the world. Current trends toward the globalization of business render this position increasingly untenable. The Handbook of Cross-Cultural Management Research is the first reference that draws together current cross-national studies conducted within specific management fields and relates them to the conceptual frameworks that have emerged from studies with a more explicit cross-cultural focus.
