Description

The world of organizations is no longer defined by local or national boundaries. INTERNATIONAL DIMENSIONS OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR; 5th edition; (PDF) breaks down the theoretical; conceptual; and practical boundaries limiting our ability to understand and work with people in countries and cultures around the globe. 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.

NOTE: This only includes the ebook International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior; 5e; in PDF. No access codes included.
