Managers and National Culture: A Global Perspective


The authors look at the role of managers in fifteen advanced and newly industrializing nations throughout the world. Each chapter is designed to cover three major themes. The first theme defines how the term manager is used in the particular country, as well as the status and ideology of managers in that country. The second theme identifies the link between societal values and managerial values. Finally, the authors discuss the ways that managers are recruited, selected, appraised, compensated, trained and how they are affected by labor relations. In the final chapter, the editor discusses both the similarities and differences in the experiences of managers across the selected countries.
