International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior (5TH 08 Edition)


International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior (5TH 08 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world of organizations is no longer defined by national boundaries--and neither are today's successful business leaders. Stay ahead of the curve with INTERNATIONAL DIMENSIONS OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR, the proven and respected text that breaks down the conceptual, theoretical, and practical boundaries limiting our ability to understand and work with people in countries and cultures around the world. Adler's hallmark approach views global complexity as neither unpredictable nor random; rather, she demonstrates that variations across cultures and their impacts on organizations follow systematic, predictable patterns. With a blend of substance and readability, INTERNATIONAL DIMENSIONS OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR is both authoritative and richly detailed.

Book News Annotation:

This resource for executives, managers, and students looks at organizational behavior issues from a global perspective. It opens with a discussion of the impact of culture on organizations. Adler (organizational behavior and international management, McGill U.) then presents a framework for managing in multicultural work environments. In the final section, she addresses some challenges faced by global managers, such as frequent relocation and dual-career couples. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
