The world of organizations is no longer defined by national boundaries. INTERNATIONAL DIMENSIONS OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR 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. The authors' blend of substance and readability--including a wealth of research and examples from around the world--results in a text that is authoritative and richly detailed.
