International Management: Cross-cultural Dimensions (Blackwell Business) Reviews
Book of high Quality. Highly recommended for any Researcher in intercultural manangement including Trainers and Researchers. Very well written and recommended.
Richard Mead has achieved a rare victory: he has written a book which covers both western and eastern business culture thoroughly, objectively and fairly. He never indicates a preference for either culture, yet is able to present the pros and cons of both with equal clarity. He covers all leading international management cultural theory (Hofstede, Trompenaars, Hall, et. al), provides thought-provoking and original cases for analysis and discussion, and even has a helpful summary & quiz section at the end of each chapter. Part IV, Making the Strategy Work, HRM Issues, offers a clear and unbiased look at expatriation and training, both from the HR and from the expatriate manager's perspectives. Having lived and worked for two decades in Asia, this reviewer can attest to the veracity of the many sections on Asian business culture...and as an intercultural management trainer, to the depth and detail of the cross-cultural theory explained so completely, and yet in a way which every expatriate manager can grasp at once. This is an MBA-in-a-book....don't leave home without it.
This is a great book for International Management students. I know minimal on the subject going in and because my class was so fast-paced it was nice to have this book where there are summaries throughout each chapter/sub chapter. I'm not a big fan of textbooks in general but this one was easy to read and if you want the cliff-notes, essentially, they have them! ;-) I'm not trying to promote slacking off in classes but when you are too busy to see straight it helps!
This is an excellent text for any business student who is studying multi-cultures. Definitely a keeper in your business's library. Very concise and well structured.
This Book is very good and practical for students who want to intensify their knowledge about International Management. One of its strongest point is its focus on cultural issue, which I think significant for everyone willing to work outside of his/her own cultural background - You can trust the ability of the writers who transfer their knowledges to readers.HB
Generally I like the book. I read several pages and it's useful to me. But when it arrived, the cover has folds.
