Cultures and Organizations

New or Used: $45.00
This is the international bestseller on managing cross-cultural workforces - expanded and updated! Named one of the top 20 most influential business thinkers of 2008 by "The Wall Street Journal", business anthropologist Geert Hofstede has fully updated his classic work on 'groupthink.' Since its original publication in 1991, "Cultures and Organizations" has been helping business leaders understand how people think as members of a group - which dramatically increases managers' effectiveness leading and developing cross-cultural workforces. This groundbreaking work reveals: the unexamined rules behind the thoughts and emotions of people of different cultures; ways in which cultures differ in the areas of collectivism/individualism, assertiveness/modesty, tolerance for ambiguity, and deferment of gratification; and, how organizational cultures differ from national cultures, and how they can be managed. New material in this expanded third edition includes the latest data from the author's ongoing field research and new insight into how cultural factors contributed to the current economic situation. "Cultures and Organizations" offers managers practical solutions for solving conflict between different groups and turning cultural differences to their advantage.
