Organizational Behavior

Global Multicultural Perspectives (Revised First Edition)
By Kamal Dean Parhizgar, Ph.D. and Fuzhan F. Parhizgar

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62661-241-9, 492 pages


In a global business environment, managers must understand and promote the pride of all cultures in both their home and host countries. Organizational Behavior: Global Multicultural Perspectives reflects the authors' passion for and deep commitment to a multicultural, multifaceted understanding of human behavior and its impact on the home life and in the workplace. In today's increasingly interdependent companies—within the context of the global free-market economy—economics professionals need to understand the synergistic roles played by regional, governmental, and religious forces.

This comprehensive volume is a resource for every manager who belongs to social organizations. It is also helpful for students of domestic and international businesses, political science, and public administration, as well as those working in medical and health organizations. By helping readers understand specific cultural identities, the text enables them to become multicultural, multinational managers who build their own cultural philosophies and match their corporate fitness to different business environments.
