Es soll zeigen, dass trotz der enormen Vielfalt von Denkweisen eine Struktur in dieser Vielfalt existiert, die als eine Grundlage gegenseitigen Verstehens dienen kann. Die Quellen unserer mentalen Programme liegen im sozialen Umfeld, in dem wir aufgewachsen sind und unsere Lebenserfahrungen gesammelt haben. Hofstede unterscheidet Kultur 1 und Kultur 2 Hofstede 3. Das ist "Kultur im engeren Sinne".

In his worldwide interviews and surveys, Hofstede discovered certain This is a book about culture, not stereotypes so much as statistical constants.

In his worldwide interviews and surveys, Hofstede discovered certain dimensions of cultural values that hold true across the sampled cultures and thus provided a basis for understanding, if anything, the background of the individual. There is a caveat, what he sampled Is IBM employees from various countries, which represent a particular culture of their own, rather than being representative of the culture as a whole. Those dimensions are Power Distance the psychological distance we feel to superiors - government, boss, teacher, parents , Uncertainty Avoidance or how much a culture dislikes change and prefers more rules , Masculinity vs Femininity no misogynism here, this value reflects competitiveness, among others , Individualism how much we think of ourselves as a person, rather than part of a group - family, work, social network and Long-Term Relationships how much we think of the future, how much importance we put in building a social network based on trust and strong, personal ties.

He also included Indulgence vs. Restraint, useful, but for reasons unknown the first five are those most often mentioned. Those things have been found slow to change if at all and so far have proven to have a perplexing and strong impact on the simplest of cultural interactions as you can see in the case presented at the beginning of each chapter.

Paradoxically, this work on communication is quite dully written. The way I see it the fun starts around the middle of Ch. All of Part IV "Implications" should be of interest to most people. AND on a more or less universal scale. While most other books on the matter either remain hopelessly vague, or loose themselves in academic abstractions, Hofstede really gets down to it. In our Both practical and theoretical, this is the only book that I know of that really describes and explains cultural differences on various levels family, school, work In our globalized world, this book should be required reading.

Still, I do believe the book is too long and that the author could have make it a more compact reading. It continues at school and than at work. Politics and the relationships between citizens are an extension of relationships in the family, school, and at work,and in their turn they affect these other spheres of life. If you have an interest in international business or politics, you really should take advantage of this field of study. This is a non-judgmental recognition of how different cultures provide for the psychological needs of human nature.

It addresses relative differences between culture. The research, originally funded by IBM, is a landmark in cross-cultural comparison and contrast. The graphs and tables provided are very interesting. I discovered a great deal of food for thought in this book and left feeling a greater understanding, and therefore greater compassion for those who hold different views and values. To understand what it means to be human I think it is good to look at how our cultures provide for our basic needs, and how varied these cultures are.

If you have never encountered a different culture from your own, then there are some quite concrete examples that you should be able to relate to. Should be required reading for all educated folks. The last few chapters were interesting but filled with so much opinion and culturally-laden "should" and "should not" statements Trudged Through It I am currently working on my doctorate in global leadership, and I was hoping that this text would be a great resource for my program. The last few chapters were interesting but filled with so much opinion and culturally-laden "should" and "should not" statements that I sometimes felt as if they were ignoring their own message that norms and values are culturally based.

I do believe that the authors have done some good research, but this book did not help me see it in the best light.
