5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for people with an International Mindset., 15 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Culture's Consequences: Comparing Values, Behaviors, Institutions and Organizations Across Nations (Hardcover)
I used the book as a textbook on change management for undergraduate (junior) management students. The book provides a thorough, complete practical and readable source of information that is practical for both students as well as managers.
This book is potentially amongst the most important reads for the 'dislocated' International families; we often refer to as Expatriates. It is, however, equally important to International HR managers, teams and possibly even to, for instance, exchange students and other open minded individuals.
The book covers one of the best longitudinal, global research studies that have ever been conducted. This brilliant and most valuable extensive research is presented in such a way that is that it resembles a 600 page manual, or even worse; a resemblance of a phone book.
I have, however, both as a professor, as well as a coach or consultant directed people towards research finding, and observation, of issues they were struggling with. Reading the findings and observations of large groups of people in similar situations has often times brought enormous understanding and resolve. I have had client's tell me that they learned a more valuable lesson concerning their expatriate situation from reading a few pages than they learned from their multiple management training courses.
That is way I still rate the book with a 5 start review.
