Managing People Across Cultures
Managing People Across Cultures maps out the value of people issues in the organizations of today. It challenges us to ask key questions such as 'How did Human Resource Management (HRM) come to be and what genuine need is there for it'? and 'What should the future direction of HRM be'? Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden--Turner spell out their vision for what HRM must do to stay relevant to businesses today. Their view is that people management must embrace the values of entrepreneurship i.e. agility, flexibility and innovation to ensure its continued effectiveness. The authors also argue that workplaces have to become customized to grow and learn as its employees push the boundaries of learning and discovery. Functional barriers also need to be torn down. You will discover that the rightful place for HRM is at the fountainhead of any business; the place where ideas are first generated and mobilized for action.

Capitalism in Crisis (Volume 1): What's gone wrong and how can we fix it?
Never before has there been such a period of intense change at every level of our society. Almost everything that we took for granted is now open to debate, whether that be the relationship that Britain has with the rest of the world or, at a more personal level, how the company we work for adapts to an increasingly competitive marketplace, and how that will affect our jobs. Everything is up for debate. What we are all searching for is clarity, insights and a reminder of the lessons of history that are in danger of being forgotten. Fortunately, there is someone who has the answers, or at the very least, some insightful questions that should be asked. Capitalism in Crisis is the combined insights of three of the world's top analytical brains who have been guiding businesses and governments in their quest to find answers and shape strategy. In this two-volume work, they have laid out the problems and shown the solutions in a highly accessible way using illustrations as well as text. They have proved that a picture is indeed worth much more than a thousand words.

Nine visions of capitalism: Unlocking the meanings of wealth creation
Capitalism has been in a state of crisis for nearly one hundred years. The effects of the stock market crash of 1929 were felt well into the 1950s. The turbulence in international currency markets in the late 1960s, which sparked worldwide street protests in 1968, was unresolved until the middle of the 1980s. The avalanche of financial crises that followed the failure of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 is still falling on businesses, consumers and communities around the world. In the face of such evidence it would be easy to think that capitalism is a doomed system. Nine visions of capitalism: unlocking the meanings of wealth creation suggests otherwise. According to Charles Hampden-Turner and Fons Trompenaars capitalism does have a future, but only if the standard Anglo-American model of capitalism is radically transformed. As the authors point out, creating wealth entails much more than simply making money. Society is only better off when it creates wealth through the transformation of money into products and services and the transformation of these back into money via revenue received. The current model of capitalism has led to a situation where the net worth of the world's top 10 billionaires stands at over $500 billion, enough to end world poverty instantly twice over. But the global economy is not richer for the presence of billionaires if the money in their pockets has simply been transferred from those of other people. So how can this failing model be fixed? Hampden-Turner and Trompenaars argue that accommodating diversity is a pre-requisite for the reinvention of wealth creation. China's spectacular growth, despite its recent problems, the dynamism and flexibility of the Mittelstand of German-speaking economies, Singapore's hybridization of East and West, the world's vibrant immigrant communities and the drive for renewable energy offer different aspects of an authoritative and challenging blueprint for the future of capitalism. Finally, the authors draw on examples of innovation in capitalism such as the Conscious Capitalism movement in the US, the Cambridge Phenomenon in the UK and the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, which has members from Mongolia to Patagonia as well as the US and Europe, to demonstrate what can be done to reinvigorate tired models and provide a realistic, practical and powerful transformation agenda for the global economy.

Building Cross-Cultural Competence: How to Create Wealth from Conflicting Values
Cross-cultural competence is a skill that has become increasingly essential for the managers in multinational companies. For other business people, this kind of competence may spell the difference between surviving and perishing in the new global economy. This book focuses on the dilemmas of these managers and offers constructive advice on dealing with culture shock and turning it to business advantage. Opposing values can be understood as complementary and reconcilable, say Charles Hampden-Turner and Fons Trompenaars. A manager who concentrates on integrating rather than polarizing values will make much better business decisions. Furthermore, the authors show, wealth is actually created by reconciling values-in-conflict. Based on fourteen years of research involving nearly 50,000 managerial respondents and on the authors' extensive experience in international business, the book compares American cultural values to those of more than forty other nations. It explores six culture-defining dimensions and their reverse images (universalism-particularism, individualism-communitarianism, specificity-diffusion, achieved status-ascribed status, inner direction-outer direction, and sequential time-synchronous time) and discusses them as alternative ways of coping with life's-and business's-exigencies. With humor, cartoons, and an array of business examples, the authors demonstrate how the reconciliation of cultural differences can cause whole organizations to grow healthier, wealthier, and wiser.

Capitalism in Crisis (Volume 2): How can we fix it?
There are two volumes to Capitalism in Crisis. Volume 1 investigates what has gone wrong. Volume 2 responds to the challenge laid down in Volume 1. In Volume 1, we argued that shareholders and the financial sector of the economy had become severed from stakeholders within companies who do the work and create the wealth we all enjoy. This has led to gross inequality with declining rewards for those working in the real economy on productive tasks. In turn, this has reduced wages and diverted funds from the most important contributors. We are less productive and innovative as a consequence. In this volume, we will address the subject of values. We will argue that values have scientific and verifiable meanings and it is possible to determine with great accuracy the kind of valuing that contributes to our integrity and the values that tear us apart. We criticise the contention of positivists that values are entirely subjective, have no testable meaning and are mere matters of taste, like the taste buds on tongues. We believe this doctrine has betrayed generations of students and must come to an end. Once we have restored values to their proper place, we will see who in our society creates wealth and value and who does not, who threatens democracy and who supports it. All values are really differences, and we need to reconcile these differences to remain civilized and in dialogue with one another.

Capitalism with a Conscience: How We Can Create Wealth... Not Destroy it
The recent global financial crisis is in fact a moral crisis - from its very beginnings, capitalism has been a moral movement, a way of dedicating one's life to something that will outlast the individual. The West has lost sight of this. Unless we rediscover the conscience within capitalism, we will continue to be mired in crisis, and will ultimately be usurped by China and other developing economies. This important and timely book provides a clear-sighted and detailed overview of the faultlines and contradictions within the current Western model, and shows how governments, corporations and individuals can create a stronger and more balanced culture. Drawing fascinating insights from different business cultures around the world, including modern China, the Singaporean experiment, the German Mittelstande and Scandinavian models, and from the cultures of innovation and collaboration in locations such as Silicon Valley and the 'knowledge community' in Cambridge (UK), the authors make a compelling case for the strengths of capitalism while addressing its current weaknesses. This highly topical call to arms is essential reading for experts, lay people and anyone who cares about the future of our market society.

Riding the Waves of Culture: Understanding Cultural Diversity in Business
Many managers understand that cultural differences affect the process of doing business, but many underestimate by just how much. This book aims to dispel the idea that there is only one way to manager and encourages readers to get to know their own culture before doing business with others. The author explores the cultural extremes and the incomprehension that can arise when doing business across cultures - even when people are working for the same company. The book explains that there are five key factors or orientations that affect how people all deal with each other, do business and manage. The goal is the transnational organization - one in which the company can take from each country what is best, and for those who are sensitive to these differences, the opportunities are enormous. With many practical examples and case studies, this book brings insights to the dilemma of reconciling corporate consistency with local conditions as business life rapidly internationalizes. In 1991 Fons Trompenaars was awarded the International Professional Practice Area Research Award by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD).

100+ management models: How to understand and apply the world's most powerful business tools
Fashions in business thinking change abruptly, and a wide range of management theories has been developed in an attempt to codify the shifting components of business theory. Hundreds of models have emerged to track, measure and forecast business solutions, but many of them have been buried in academic journals or are explained in such theoretical terms that they are all but useless for busy practitioners. 100+ Management Models: How to understand and apply the world's most powerful business tools gives an overview of each of the most important of these models in eight categories: sustainability, innovation, strategy, diversity, customers, human resources, benchmarking and leadership. The ninth section of the book covers the most powerful models for implementation in business. Each of the 100 models is analysed consistently with: * A tailor-made illustration of the essence of the model, as an adaptation or interpretation of the original academic source; * A problem statement, explaining what the model is designed to do; * Explanation of the essence of the model, describing what the model is about; * General and specific guidelines on how to use the model; * Identification of typical results when the model is applied; * Comments on the limitations of the model; * A list of the three most useful academic references for the model. Each section closes with reflections on the key dilemmas that tend to emerge in each category. 100+ Management Models: How to understand and apply the world's most powerful business tools is an essential resource for managers at all levels of their careers.
