This new textbook provides a unique critical perspective on a rapidly growing area of study. Taking a closely integrated international viewpoint, the book provides students with a thorough understanding of the main considerations and issues involved in working in teams across a global business environment. The book's critical approach is accessible to undergraduates as well as postgraduates, and to international students as well as those for whom English is the first language.
Its rigorous pedagogy and extensive case material ensure that students achieve a balanced and practical understanding of the main issues and debates surrounding cross-cultural management. Each chapter opens with a summary of the learning objectives and the key concepts, theory, skills and models to be covered as well as questions for reflection, which are all revisited at the end of the chapter to encourage critical thinking. The book also features vignettes, student exercises, 'Points to ponder', a longer end-of-chapter case study and questions for discussion to help students apply the theory to practice.
A supporting Online Resource Centre and engaging features help to foster a self-reflective outlook and encourages a career-focused approach to the study of the subject. The Online Resource Centre features:
Suggested answers to questions in the book
Electronic copies of figures and tables from the book
