9780850584288: Riding the Waves of Culture: Understanding Cultural Diversity in Business

Many managers understand that cultural differences affect the process of doing business, but many underestimate by just how much. This book aims to dispel the idea that there is only one way to manager and encourages readers to get to know their own culture before doing business with others. The author explores the cultural extremes and the incomprehension that can arise when doing business across cultures - even when people are working for the same company. The book explains that there are five key factors or orientations that affect how people all deal with each other, do business and manage. The goal is the "transnational organization" - one in which the company can take from each country what is best, and for those who are sensitive to these differences, the opportunities are enormous. With many practical examples and case studies, this book brings insights to the dilemma of reconciling corporate consistency with local conditions as business life rapidly internationalizes. In 1991 Fons Trompenaars was awarded the International Professional Practice Area Research Award by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD).

From the Back Cover:

Read the book that is revolutionizing international business!

With over 50,000 copies sold in its first edition, Riding the Waves of Culture dispelled the idea that there is only one way to manage, and was the first book to show professional managers how to build the cross-cultural skills, sensitivity, and awareness required in today's global business environment. In this second edition, Fons Trompenaars and co-author Charles Hampden-Turner reveal the seven key dimensions of business behavior, and how they combine to form four basic types of corporate culture:

  • The Family (Japan, Belgium)
  • The Eiffel Tower (France, Germany)
  • The Guided Missile (US, UK)
  • The Incubator (Silicon valley)

This revised and updated edition features completely new sections including:

  • An in-depth examination of one of the world's most multicultural nations­­South Africa­­and how recent events make it an ongoing laboratory of intercultural reconciliations
  • A detailed analysis of how gender differences within the United States affect workplace and problem-solving behavior
  • Current research findings on how ethnic differences within a society can be more troublesome than international differences­­and how some managers are keeping the peace
  • A systematic program for uncovering, understanding, respecting, and reconciling cultural differences at all levels of the organization
