"Richard Steers and his colleagues provide a comprehensive and useful analysis of the many areas where culture shapes and influences managerial behaviors and practices. The book should be an excellent resource for global managers who have to navigate their way through different countries and cultures."
Andrew Inkpen, J. Kenneth and Jeannette Seward Chair in Global Strategy and Professor of Management, Thunderbird School of Global Management
"Unlike other books in this field, this work digs deeper into the underlying reasons for global differences, and this information can help managers be more effective in their work. Another of the book's strengths is the authors' inclusion of recent research on cultural anthropology, psychology, and management, which provides a much broader framework for understanding. Highly recommended."

Management practices and processes frequently differ across national and regional boundaries. What may be acceptable managerial behaviour in one culture may be counterproductive or even unacceptable in another. This book examines why these differences exist and how global managers can develop strategies and tactics to deal with them.
