A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Cross-Cultural Management

© 2017 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
In Cross-Cultural Management, the author takes a critical, power-sensitive and culturally-aware perspective that moves beyond the paradigms debate, placing greater emphasis on the holistic nature of culture and its managerial consequences and taking into account the diversity and multiple identities apparent in cross-cultural management.

Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the ‘Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap’ series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way.

Suitable for students of cross-cultural management, human resource management or workplace diversity and professionals working in organizations and intercultural training.
