The Influence of National Culture on Managerial Behavior

Abstract

A manager's behavior is not random. JACKOFSKY/SLOCUM235 have identified five forces that influence managerial behavior: task environment, strategy, organizational structure, managerial characteristics, and national culture. While various linkages between the first four forces have been proposed and tested, the cultural influence on managerial behavior has up to now been widely neglected.236 Additionally, despite rich literature on cultural values, very few investigators have explored the relationship between cultural values and managerial actions.237 Even less is known about the operative process by which this association occurs.
