"...attempt[s] to bring balance, insight and logic...the authors succeed admirable in this endeavour..." ( Dialogin.com, June 2006)


Managing People Across Cultures maps out the value of people issues in the organizations of today. It challenges us to ask key questions such as How did Human Resource Management (HRM) come to be and what genuine need is there for it? and What should the future direction of HRM be? Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden-Turner spell out their vision for what HRM must do to stay relevant to businesses today. Their view is that people management must embrace the values of entrepreneurship i.e. agility, flexibility and innovation to ensure its continued effectiveness. The authors also argue that workplaces have to become customized to grow and learn as its employees push the boundaries of learning and discovery. Functional barriers also need to be torn down. You will discover that the rightful place for HRM is at the fountainhead of any business; the place where ideas are first generated and mobilized for action.
