This volume offers a worldwide array of the first truly integrated work reflecting the most up-to-date research and practice in global organizational science by 40 topmost experts (scientist-practitioners) from 25 nations. It is a well-blended international stew of epistemic knowledge on some of the hottest subject areas such as cross-cultural and cross-border issues of importance and challenge to organizations today, small and family business/entrepreneurship, diversity, individualism-collectivism, and modern technology. It is a valuable resource for scholars, practitioners, managers, decision makers, and students alike. This extraordinarily well-written and practically-crafted, culture-inclusive text could not be more relevant and timelier.
