The book examines the international, cross-cultural environment faced by international firms, detailing how this environment affects behavior at both the individual and organizational levels.
Fully updated to incorporate the latest research in the field, Punnett has also invested in several new features that will make this book even more appealing to students and instructors:
- Expanded and new coverage of several key topics, including diversity, multi-cultural teams, virtual teams, global careers, global talent management, global value chains, ethics, and millennials.
- New pedagogy—learning objectives, chapter summaries, lessons learned, cases, mini-cases, and discussion questions—to help students consolidate learning and encourage critical thinking.
Clearly written and concise, International Perspectives on Organizational Behavior helps students of international organizational behavior and cross-cultural management classes understand the many differences that managers face when operating cross-nationally, and provides them with practical tools to tackle these differences.
