Holden, Nigel J.
Cross-Cultural Management, A Knowledge Management Perspective forges a break with the concept of culture that has dominated management thinking, education and research for several decades. Culture rather than being presented as a source of difference and antagonism, is presented as a form of organisational knowledge that can be converted into a resource for underpinning core competence.
"If books are to be judged on the effect that they have on the thought processes of the reader Professor Holden's book is outstanding. This book will provide both a valuable theoretical underpinning and many insights that will move the study of cross-cultural management and knowledge management into the age of the knowledge economy - an achievement that will pay dividends both to researchers and practitioners for many years to come."
