The revolutionary study of how the place where wegrew up shapes the way we think, feel, and act--with new dimensions and perspectives Based on research conducted in more than seventy countries over a forty-year span, Cultures and Organizations examines what drives people apart-when cooperationis so clearly in everyone's interest. With major new contributions from MichaelMinkov's analysis of data from the World Values Survey, as well as an account ofthe evolution of cultures by Gert Jan Hofstede, this revised and expanded edition: Reveals the "moral circles" from which national societiesare built and the unexamined rules by which people think, feel, and act Explores how national cultures differ in the areas of inequality, assertiveness versus modesty, and tolerance for ambiguity Explains how organizational cultures differ from nationalcultures-and how they can be managed Analyzes stereotyping, differences in language, cultural rootsof the 2008 economic crisis, and other intercultural dynamics. -- Provided by publisher
Culture's consequences : international differences in work-related values by Geert Hofstede( Book )

29 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hofstede has produced an ingenious, careful, and richly stimulating book that will certainly be useful to all those concerned with managing multinational and multicultural organizations. ... The book offers educators a new conceptual framework and a bank of data that will be highly useful in teaching."--Academy of Management Review "An important, sophisticated and complex monograph. ... Both the theoretical analysis and the empirical findings constitute major contributions to cross-cultural value analysis and the cross-cultural study of work motivations and organizational dynamics. This book is also a valuable resource for anyone interested in a historical or anthropological approach to cross-cultural comparisons."--Personnel Psychology "One cannot help admiring the effort that went into this book and ending up more knowledgeable and wiser for having read it."--Contemporary Sociology "Should be read by every manager about to embark on an international or intercultural work assignment. To benefit most from his ideas requires great concentration on the part of the reader, but it is worth the effort. The manager should be able to substantially improve his (most international managers are men) effectiveness by applying his understanding of the culturally based differences in values among the firm's employees. In a classroom situation, this book would be appropriate for graduate students." --Reviews in Anthropology

Culture's consequences : comparing values, behaviors, institutions, and organizations across nations by Geert Hofstede( Book )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second Edition of this classic work, first published in 1981 and an international bestseller, explores the differences in thinking and social action that exist among members of more than 50 modern nations. Geert Hofstede argues that people carry "mental programs" which are developed in the family in early childhood and reinforced in schools and organizations, and that these programs contain components of national culture. They are expressed most clearly in the different values that predominate among people from different countries. Geert Hofstede has completely rewritten, revised and updated Cultures Consequences for the twenty-first century, he has broadened the book's cross-disciplinary appeal, expanded the coverage of countries examined from 40 to more than 50, reformulated his arguments and a large amount of new literature has been included. The book is structured around five major dimensions: power distance; uncertainty avoidance; individualism versus collectivism; masculinity versus femininity; and long term versus short-term orientation. --Publisher

Lokales Denken, globales Handeln : interkulturelle Zusammenarbeit und globales Management by Geert Hofstede( Book )

33 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in German and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie unsere Herkunft das Denken, Fühlen und Handeln beeinflusst: Die Polarisierung der Welt ist heute bedenklicher als am Ende des Kalten Krieges, trotz freiem Handel und digitaler Technik, durch die eine globale Verbundenheit zustande kam, von der Science Fiction & ndash; Autoren vor 50 Jahren nicht einmal träumten. Woran liegt es aber, dass Menschen getrennte Wege gehen, wenn doch Kooperation so klar in jedermanns Interesse liegt? Sind wir eine Spezies, die dazu verdammt ist, sich permanent misszuverstehen und in Konflikt miteinander zu geraten? Sie finden die Antworten in diesem Buch. Dieser Atlas für kulturelle Werte basiert auf über 30jähriger Forschung über mehr als 70 Länder. Gleichzeitig beschreibt das Buch eine revolutionäre Theorie des kulturellen Relativismus und seiner Anwendungsmöglichkeiten in verschiedenen Berufen

Uncommon sense about organizations : cases, studies, and field observations by Geert Hofstede( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hofstede's lifetime of research into organizational behavior has yielded a considerable number of studies using a variety of methodologies. Uncommon Sense About Organizations assembles 17 of the author's superlative articles and case studies, grouping them within three main themes: the impact of jobs on people, power and control in organizations, and studies in training sessions. Hofstede further divides and examines these subjects in relation to their sizes, categorizing studies of the individual or small group as belonging to organizational psychology, for example, while attributing the study of a single, larger, and more complex organization to the discipline of organizational anthropology. The combination of the author's careful and informed scrutiny and his thoughtful juxtaposition of these topics reveals organizational realities that might not otherwise be discerned." "Encompassing such wide-ranging disciplines as sociology, psychology, and anthropology, Uncommon Sense About Organizations is a tour de force of behavioral science research."--Jacket
Futures for work : a book of original readings by Jaap Boersma( Book )

14 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred years ago, on the first of November 1878, the first, partly elected, workers representation within a Dutch industrial concern was installed. This took place at the Nederlandsche Gist- en Spiritusjabriek which is now known, since amalgamating in 1967 with Brocades, Stheeman & Pharmacia, as Gist-Brocades. The centennial of workers representation occurs at a time in which the debate about the relationship between man and his work has reached a new height. The role of social pioneer that, in the history of industry, fell to this concern, now creates for us a twofold obli gation: In the first instance to give due honour, after 100 years, to the pioneer ofthose days, J.C. Van Marken and to commemorate hirn in contemporary fashion: the first chapter of this book, published on the occasion ofthe centennial, is devoted to the life and work of our illustrious precursor. Secondly we fee! that it is in the spirit of pioneership to look forward and thereby direct ourselves primarily to the future of work. To this end, the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management in Brussels formulated some pertinent questions which were then laid before a number of prominent writers and social thinkers in Holland and elsewhere. This book contains their responses. VIII FOREWORD We did not ask the authors to look into teacups or to tell the future from the stars

Cultural differences in a globalizing world by Michael Minkov( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book depicts the world's national and ethnic cultures in an unprecedented way. It is based on analyses of all publicly available large databases that provide cultural indicators about modern nations: the World Values Survey, the United Nations Statistics Division, the world Health Organization and many academic studies. The author explains some of the main cultural differences between modern nations and ethnic groups across the globe. The readers will understand why human societies differ on many important indicators and what culture has to do with these: speed of economic development, happiness, tolerance of diversity, religiousness, national pride, educational achievement, difficult integration of immigrants, suicides rates, gender equality, violent crime, competition for women and sexual norms, adolescent fertility and HIV rates, corruption, rule of law, road death tolls, punctuality."--Page 4 of cover

Interkulturelle Zusammenarbeit : Kulturen, Organisationen, Management by Geert Hofstede( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied
