This is a book about culture, not stereotypes as much as statistically verified constants As usual, I m going to make my case on why you should read it rather than the summary oh, yes, there are a few cliffnotes on the author s cultural dimensions Wiki page This book represents several decades of research, all around the globe, so nothing is passed off as but those are the insert nationality here , they re crazy In his worldwide interviews and surveys, Hofstede discovered certain dimensions of c [...]
The book gives you an insight of the cultural differences of nations and explains why behaviors values heroes symbols have a certain meaning and how they start to evolve from inside the family It is interesting to have a closer look into the power distance or the avoidance uncertainty concepts and understand how they reflect on people s mindsets and how they translate into organization s culture.Still, I do believe the book is too long and that the author could have make it a compact reading.As [...]
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 AND on a 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 parts the book might be a bit dated, but imho Hofstede s cultural dimensions are still essential in understanding cultural diversity.In our globalized w [...]
Trudged Through ItI am currently working on my doctorate in global leadership, and I was hoping that this text would be a great resource for my program Though the book contains some very good information and some intriguing insights, much of it is a very long recount of the authors research, along with reasons why their research is so good and others so lacking The last few chapters were interesting but filled with so much opinion and culturally laden should and should not statements that I some [...]
Title may sound dry, but if you, like me, find cultural differences fascinating annoying you really must read this book, or something similar If you have an interest in international business or politics, you really should take advantage of this field of study I found Geert Hofstede while trying to research the cultural challenges of the NATO American effort in Afghanistan This is a non judgmental recognition of how different cultures provide for the psychological needs of human nature It addres [...]
I ve read a lot of books about cultural differences or diversity, but Hofstede s masterwork is just on a different order than the rest It is a research based examination of national and organizational cultural differences across a number of domains, such as power distance differences, attitudes towards individualism and collectivism, gender cultures and several others He then goes on to discuss implications of this research to intercultural and interorganizational encounters.This is a must read [...]
Quickly browsed this classic book again First read it about eight years ago and found it still stimulating One thing dawned on me this time is that among the six dimensions of culture Hofstede lists power distance, collectivism individualism, masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, long term orientation, and indulgence restraint, U.S and China are on the opposite side in five No wonder we would differ in so many important ways The only thing that is common for both is masculinity, that both cultures [...]
This book taught me a lot, Hofstede s model can be used on so many basis to classify the different cultures and seek understanding them However, it s object to criticisms in some of its dimensions
A must read for anyone working in international relations Rather that be business or NGO work Hofstede gives tools to connect cultures and allow us to see our own ethnocentricity at work.
In times of globalization, understanding and accepting cultural diversity and appreciating other people s views about life and how human beings should relate to one another is increasingly important In the late sixties, Dr Geert Hofstede became interested in the cultural differences between countries and has researched this subject since then This book presents his work for the general reader It is not an easy book, but the interested reader will be able to fully understand the ideas reading an [...]
This took a long time for me to get through because it is packed with information It is a fascinating study into culture and what that word really means There is a large discussion of different elements that distinguish different cultures based on survey data They show how countries differ from each other in terms of these elements, which I thought was quite interesting, to think about how someone from Japan or China might have a different idea of how to approach a particular situation compared [...]
If you want to understand how cultures differ from each other, then this is a great book to read While it does get deep into research methodology a bit boring, but necessary , it also offers a lot of practical advice This book also provides a lot of charts and lists with main points, so it is easy to find relevant information quickly The bottom line is that cultural values were set deep in the past, but that they are continually evolving in response to events and experiences If you work or teach [...]
This was a pretty interesting comparative perspective on culture organizational and otherwise It s easy to forget sometimes how the culture we re born into can influence our perspective, often in ways we re completely unaware of And if one finds oneself engaged in pastimes such asoh, I don t knowtion building, it bears remembering that even something as Perfect and Flawless as American democracy can be difficult, if not downright impossible, to export to a nation or region that has a completely [...]
This book is a thorough and useful exploration of the ramifications of culture on national and organizational differences In comparison to Hostede s book Culture s Consequences , this work is intended to be accessible and less of a professional research text While I m sure the author attained this aim, I still find Cultures and Organizations to be a very dense read many of the best conclusions are to be found buried between tables and outlines of research surveys Even as a mathematician with a [...]
Interesting research from the 1960is at IBM, Hofstede using factor analysis, found 4 dimensions where national values are plotted used data from over 50 countries that latter study, with Minkov, had data from over 90 countries 2 dimensions were subsequently added in the third edition of this book The authors contend that social class has culture corporate culture is a different animal altogether, and has different dimensions, according to the authors Despite the global world we live in, there i [...]
To be fair, the onion and pyramid models provided in the opening chapter are of use when applied broadly and the anecdotal evidence provided throughout the work is compelling on the surface But then The fundamental issue at hand is the authors are trying very hard to force a cherry picked body of research into a theory that is masquerading as a universal theory on mental modeling and cultural relativism It simply falls flat when the primary thesis here built from a survey of global IBM employees [...]
This is a very good book.There are a lot definitions of what culture and what values are Most of them are in the form of romantic poetry, personal experience and feelings What Hofstedes actually did, they quantified value systems, gave them names, dimensions and showed how values for different cultures differ or cultures for different cultures differ, which way you like However the most important stuff to take from the book is the fact that even Western countries differ a lot This is especially [...]
The book offers and synthesis of Geert Hofstede s scientific model of intercultural differences It presents the details of the 5 factors differentiating cultural values and much It is a short version 560 pages of his work, easy to read and meant for non academics The long and detailed version of his academic work is found in his other book Culture consequences It is important to buy the last edition Compared to the previous edition, the last edition to this date 2010 brings significant changes [...]
Beetje een flauwe titel voor deze nieuwe herwerkte uitgave van Hofstedes Cultures and Organisations Software of the mind De dimensies blijven echter essentieel voor wie enig inzicht wil krijgen in cultuurverschillen De concrete aanpak van Hofstede blijft verfrissend in dit studiegebied waarin nogal wat boeken verschijnen met abstract academisch getheoretiseerast ook een hele stapel boeken die helaas niet verder komen dan enkele goedbedoelde clich s.Dit boek zou in heel wat opleidingen en zeker n [...]
This book is interesting, but the author tends to essentialize and naturalize cultural and national identity, ignoring the fact that there are usually differences within groups than there are between them Statistically speaking, it is easy to find even tiny ggregate differences between groups if the sample size is large enough unfortunately these usually small statistically significant differences are translated into the media and popular culture as binary oppositions i.e Asians are collectivis [...]
A very interesting book giving a lucid exposition of Hofstede s attempts at cultural quantification Also notably it argues for observing different moralities arising from different cultural experiences, yet also contains arguments in favor of the authors moral particularities To be fair, this is lampshaded implicitly when calling for world citizens to learn about others values while remaining rooted in their own.
Concise and detailed insights of how societies breathe in out through its cultural lungs , to each and every scrutinised aspects of its daily functioning stereotyping, barriers to languages,semantics etc But , albeit being a great socio litterary, it is quite long to discuss on visible cultural differences But amazing Hofstede, he got it right to be the most cited European sociologist in today s sociology.
One if my favorite book that explain so much to me It is like fundamentals that everyone should learn For business, for tourists, for people who want to understand about country s culture Still, i miss data, especially about young peoples, subcultures Mr Hofstede could extend his research.
culture a software of one s mind which differentiate one human group from others Culture in this sense includes values Must read for those who majoring in marketing and management Those who also interested in managing cultural differences as well as planning to establish a multi national company or negotiate with other foreign people.
The masterwork for the general public by Prof Geert Hofstede, who with his four dimensions of culture singlehandedly laid the basis for the academic study of intercultural differences, which in its turn became the inspiration for the flourishing consultancy world of today Everybody in this field stands on the shoulders of Hofstede The book is a pleasure to read and highly recommended.
I had so many questions about what it is to be human, what is environmental and what is genetic This author takes a look at extensive data from studies from IBM which traverse the globe, and he charts patterns of human behavior He show which countries value independence or being in groups, which are or less hierarchical, or less masculine or feminine, etc etc I love this book.
In my thesis I worked with issues of multicultural collaboration in developing software This book gave me clues on how to approach the corelation between cultural issues and the technical organizational ones Although highly critisized or not so popular by most researchers whom I met or with whom I shared a research group, I found this book and theory can be practical and easier to use.
This book has been on my shelf for several years as a resource and was used initially for my Masters project It is a challenging read yet, Hofstede writing is researched based and the author has a solid reputation I go back to this book from time to time to reflect on my Masters project and what I took away from the book.
Excellent reference book for anyone who works with people from other cultures or travels a lot Hofstede and team give the reader lots to think about Very clearly presented, using relevant examples, based on an extensive body of research I m enjoying the European perspective on some world issues that I ve mainly been exposed to from the American point of view.
An IBM s survey cannot make generalizations on people of the country and all the businesses Period Above all how does Europe have so many regions east and west of nations and Africa is one 2 stars because the definitions of the cultural parameters were good but labeling was entirely wrong and because there are better versions of these studies now the authors website.
