About the Authors
  • It is now widely recognized that countries around the world are becoming increasingly interconnected, and that both public and private organizations are of necessity becoming increasingly global. As political, legal, and economic barriers recede in this environment, cultural barriers emerge as a principal challenge to organizational survival and success. It is not yet clear whether these global realities will cause cultures to converge, harmonize, and seek common ground or to retrench, resist, and accentuate their differences. In either case, it is of paramount importance for both managers and organizational scholars to understand the cultural crosscurrents underlying these changes. With contributions from an international team of scholars, this book reviews, analyzes, and integrates available theory and research to give the best information possible concerning the role of culture and cultural differences in organizational dynamics.

    • Comprehensive study of the influence of national cultural differences on organizational processes
    • Includes research and theoretical insights from leading scholars around the world
    • Essential reference work for researchers and students in cross-cultural organizational studies

    Reviews & endorsements

    “This Handbook conveniently brings together a wide range of contributions by international experts. It provides an up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of what we know, and still don’t know, about how culture influences organizations and work. This is a subject of keen interest to both scholars and practitioners, but one in which different theories and methodologies compete for attention. The handbook that Bhagat and Steers have assembled guides us through the maze and will be an indispensible source of reference for many years to come.”
    John Child, Chair of Commerce, Birmingham University Business School

    “Effectively managing cross-cultural interaction for the benefit of society and the economy will define the success of twenty-first century society. The Cambridge Handbook of Culture, Organizations, and Work, edited by Rabi Bhagat and Rick Steers, could not be more relevant or timely. It is an important addition to the libraries and thinking of international management scholars.”
    Nancy J. Adler, S. Bronfman Chair in Management, McGill University, Montreal, and author of International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior (5th edition, 2008)

    “Rabi Bhagat and Rick Steers have combined their broad knowledge of research on organizations and culture to edit a state-of-the-art handbook that will serve as an important work of reference for both new and established scholars. The Cambridge Handbook of Culture, Organizations, and Work melds a strong disciplinary and cross-disciplinary perspective and features contributions from up–and-coming as well as highly respected senior scholars in the field.”
    Arie Y. Lewin, Professor of Strategy and Sociology, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of International Business Studies (2002– 2007)
