International Organizational Behavior: Transcending Borders and Cultures
McFarlin, Dean Sweeney, Paul
This book focuses on understanding and managing organizational behavior in an international context, considering the conceptual framework of culture and offering practical advice for navigating cultures in the workplace. Readers will gain new tools to interpret behavior, helping them to manage international challenges effectively.
The authors outline the critical management and adaptation skills necessary to develop within a globalized organization, teaching the reader how to recruit, coordinate, and evaluate an international team. Updated "Culture Clash" and "Global Innovations" boxes provide important insights into identifying a core set of values to "customize" management techniques across cultures, focusing particularly on growing countries like India and China. The new edition features a more streamlined chapter structure, updated discussion questions, and new end-of-chapter cases with self-scoring quizzes for further development.
International Organizational Behavior will prove a valuable resource for any student of organizational behavior, international management, and international business. A companion website provides additional support for instructors, featuring an instructor's manual, test bank, and PowerPoint slides.
