With expanding globalization, international enterprises exercise a growing influence on the culture of corporations in countries where they operate. Several frameworks are available for comparing both country and organizational cultures in a quantitative manner. Yet until now, the paradigm has been that these two types of culture need to be measured independently, presenting a major obstacle to the comparison of work cultures internationally. In this book, Paul Melessen develops a framework that incorporates multilevel modeling to bridge the gap between analyses of these two types of culture. Building upon and enriching existing theory, Melessen compares fifteen multinational corporations to demonstrate how organizational cultures differ from national cultures?and how they can be analyzed, described, and managed.
