There is seriously valuable information in the latter article with regards to cross-cultural competency and statistics relations to expatriate experiences. In the former, there is a distinct focus on the relationship with failure and offers some questions to ask to illuminate this relationship. These questions are as follows: 1. Are failures a fact of life or can they be avoided by planning? 2. What would you do if a friend made a professional mistake on which you needed to report it publicly? 3. Is it individual creativity or team consensus that is most important for avoiding mistakes? 4. Do you address criticism to the task or the person? 5. Is the seriousness of a mistake affected by the person who made it or not? 6. Are failures attributed to a person or team involved or to the department head?

    Even though it’s a bit dated in general, the book is a good starting point if you’re facing the challenges of multicultural work environments for the first time. The first few articles are more applicable to the distributed web development business which I’m particularly interested in. The majority though deal with topics relevant to a broader corporate perspective, and don’t dig particularly deep into any of them, and I can recommend them only as a starting point to map out concepts of interes Even though it’s a bit dated in general, the book is a good starting point if you’re facing the challenges of multicultural work environments for the first time. The first few articles are more applicable to the distributed web development business which I’m particularly interested in. The majority though deal with topics relevant to a broader corporate perspective, and don’t dig particularly deep into any of them, and I can recommend them only as a starting point to map out concepts of interest to explore further. Be that as it may, as someone interested in all aspects of multicultural management this was a quick and curious read.

    A lot of words to say some pretty straight-forward things. Be flexible and adaptable; incorporate different approaches and ideas; don't presume your way is best; and learn to communicate better. It's strange that so much of what I read in HBR's articles and books is common sense - while I know that I've had an unusually peripatetic life, it can't be that all of this is uniquely because I've travelled widely. It makes me curious to know what people going into business are actually like... (It also A lot of words to say some pretty straight-forward things.

    A very dynamic and interesting way of talking about working through different cultures and the impact it could have in productivity and performance itself, most important how people and companies need to adapt to the different cultures in and endless process to redefine he new standard. Another must read to increase our performance in or work environment and most in our managing skills courtesy of HBR.

    I bought this at the airport on the way home, I didn't take away much from this, as I would of assumed alot of this was straight forward, this will be going onto the shelf. The articles themselves are interesting and may be useful to someone working in a senior position, at a very large company otherwise it may not be worth the read.

    Breezy, gives a good sensitivity on culture. E.g. a grasshopper is a pet in china, delicacy in thailand and insect in India
