Format:Paperback
An easy to follow, reader friendly text into cross cultural management. Layout clear and concise and information accurate and well laid out. An absolute must for an all round book on international management. It even expains Hofstede in a simplistic fashion. Good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and critical - a must! 5 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With all the proliferation of cheap discussions of culture as being the driver or killer of business success that's been going around in the past few years, or the other cheap argument of universalisation of culture through globalisation, Profs. Mead and Andrews provide a refreshingly thorough, detailed and balanced analysis of the relationship between culture and business performance and behaviour. A concise yet detailed and well structured investigation into cultural influences on business practices and what they mean for the manager of international organisations. I specially enjoyed the critical and unassuming view of the relationship between globalisation and culture, which was refreshing and illustrative. All in all, a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One book to manage them all 16 July 2014
By Kallel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great insight with a global perspective on the process of hiring, training, and developing staff, with great strategic decision making focusing on foreign markets. This 4th edition still incorporates the special appendix on how to write successful dissertations or class project, useful for MBA, advanced undergraduate courses or the like minded. Included are discussions of cross-cultural models, new case examples from the US, Europe, Asia and perspectives from other regions but still focusing on focusing on a number of key issues, such as differences in management styles, organizational structures, corporate governance, production systems, corporate strategy, labour relations, and human resource issues in different countries. This book still remains as the comprehensive market leader in introduction to global cross-cultural management available and has been extensively revised.
