Current management books and manuals make a popular topic out of doing business in China, and they operate on the assumption that Chinese business culture strongly contrasts Western. However, evidence suggests that tensions between value and market and community and individual are part of every market-entering society, while only the reactions differ. This new book raises questions about the ways personal relations are dealt with in China, specifically relations between Chinese and Western partners. Social relationships carry considerable weight in Chinese culture, with special emphasis on the role of social connections and rules of conduct. The chapters of this book analyse and assess the methods for harmonising business relations across cultures.
Local culture has long been recognised as a critically important factor in shaping management styles in different Asian countries. This book provides a comprehensive overview of culture and management in major East and Southeast Asian economies. Each chapter provides a survey of the country's history, culture and economy, going on to examine management in the country, together with management education and how management is currently changing. The book will provide an invaluable introduction for students of international management, for those studying management within East and Southeast Asia, and for businessmen trading with the region.
Why ‘Managing across diverse cultures in East Asia’? We re-examine in this book the link between culture and management across the region vis a vis the new economic, political and social landscape that has appeared over the last decade. We accordingly present a set of chapters on East Asian cultures, economies, societies and their management across the board, focusing on countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, as well as the Overseas Chinese enclaves of Hong Kong SAR, Macao and Taiwan. The contributors to this edited book are all specialists in their respective fields; they hail from a variety of universities and business schools across the world, located in a wide range of countries in the East and in the West. The chapters, we believe, reflect a balance between the past and present, theory and practice, as well as the general and the particular. 'East Asia could not be more important. Malcolm Warner could not be more insightful. Reading Managing Across Diverse Cultures in East Asia will allow you to gain a profound understanding of the cultural complexity in this dynamic region of the world.' - Nancy J. Adler, McGill University, Montreal 'We all need to understand more about management in East Asia, and to learn from it. Managing Across Diverse Cultures in East Asia has contributions from international experts who provide significant insights into the cultures of the most dynamic region in the world today.

It is a must read for anyone who is interested in international management.' - Kwok Leung, City University of Hong Kong 'Helping a new generation of readers interested in this important region to make better sense, Managing Across Diverse Cultures in East Asia is destined to become a new classic. I expect this well-researched book to be widely read, cited, and debated in the years to come.' - Mike W Peng, University of Texas at Dallas 'Having had such unexpected disasters as earthquakes, floods and financial crises in recent years, we are increasingly dependent on people-management. Development of human resources, in turn, requires region-specific and organization-specific strategies. The present volume edited by Malcolm Warner points the reader to the secret of success in high-performing economies and firms in East Asia.' - Yoko Sano, Kaetsu University, Tokyo
Asian scholars clarify career patterns in Asian and U.S. firms and offer suggestions useful for human resource managers of firms operating in East Asia.
This edited volume deals with Management in South-East Asia. It widely agreed that this is a region of growing importance economically in today’s globalized world. This area contains a diverse range of dynamic economies, ranging from the ‘highly developed’ through to the ‘newly emerging’, each competing in a different manner and with different characteristics. This book specifically focuses on current and future developments in areas such as Business Culture, Enterprises and Human Resources. It covers a range of topics, industries, size of firms and countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, three of which are capitalist economies, with the latter a transitional communist one). These locations also comprehend a variety of business cultures, with a variety of religious values, ranging from Buddhist to Islamic, and ethnic identities. The approach taken is inter-disciplinary and most of the contributions are by locally-based authors who are very well qualified to write about their chosen country-setting. The experts contributing include those specialized in banking, business management, economics, finance, sociology, psychology and so on, all based in business schools and universities, encompassing a good number of national origins. This book was previously published as a special issue of the Asian Pacific Business Review.

South Africa is celebrating its first decade of democratic freedom. It therefore seems appropriate to examine in more detail how South Africa has tried to restore some of the many social injustices caused by the former apartheid regime. This book offers a view into the world of organisation and management from a cultural perspective. The authors investigate how initiatives and policies with the aim of generating more employment equity have been developed, implemented and have worked out in various sectors of the South African economy. The various chapters present in-depth case studies that deal with the South African government, local NGOs, universities and tourism. The book reveals in detail the local struggles of the historically disadvantaged and the 'powers-that-be', to try and live up to the ideals of the New South Africa.
