In the era of globalization competitive advantage is at a premium, and how we manage our people remains a differentiating factor. Understanding how national culture affects management style can be a key strategy for organizations in the United States, especially if expansion overseas is being considered. This lecture explores five dimensions of national culture that have an impact on how organizations might manage most effectively across countries: power distance, individualism, masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, and long- versus short-term focus. Dr. O’Brien is an Assistant Professor of Management on the St. Norbert College Business Administration faculty.
