Summary
Offers qualitative studies of collaboration processes conducted in globalizing companies based in Denmark and with subsidiaries in Asia. It addresses the specific contexts of collaboration and studies how people with different cultural backgrounds work together, both face-to-face and in the virtual workplace. The authors look at cultural differences that are perceived as troublesome, but they also describe cross-cultural interaction processes that lead to intercultural learning and bridge-building. The book highlights how important it is to develop sensitivity to different cultural perspectives and enhance reflexivity in terms of understanding how one's own culture shapes corporate values and practices. It emphasizes that Western companies active in the fast-growing Asian markets must be open to knowledge exchange in both directions, not only from West to East. The empirical studies are put into theoretical perspective by leading scholars within the research fields of cross-cultural management, international business and international human resource management
