Cultures, Organizations and Performance

The latest book on cultures, organizations and performance by Geert Hofstede, written in cooperation with Gert Jan Hofstede and Michael Minchov. Now in the Italian version, with a foreword by Fernando Salvetti - the Logosnet’s founder and managing partner.

Based on research conducted in more than seventy countries over a forty-year span, the Hofstede’s book examines what drives people apart—when cooperation is so clearly in everyone’s interest. This revised and expanded edition reveals the “moral circles” from which national societies are built and the unexamined rules by which people think, feel, and act; explores how national cultures differ in the areas of inequality, assertiveness versus modesty, and tolerance for ambiguity; explains how organizational cultures differ from national cultures—and how they can be managed.

Last but not least, analyzes stereotyping, differences in language, cultural roots of the 2008 economic crisis, and other intercultural dynamics.

Published by Franco Angeli, the Italian edition is a must have for any Italian or Swiss-Italian executive.
