Book Description

Managing change across cultures can be tricky, and universal approaches to change management may not serve their purpose in every cultural setting. This book examines the cultural dimensions that can influence the perceptions of and reactions to change in different cultural contexts and highlights the benefits of developing and applying cultural mindfulness when planning and running cross-cultural change initiatives. It offers practical advice to project and change management teams and leaders for developing Cultural Intelligence, tailoring plans to consider any cultural variables that could be barriers to (or catalysts for) effective change, and applying facilitating strategies.
