Cross-cultural Differences in Management
Tagreed Issa Kawar

This research aims at studying cross-cultural differences in management. There are areas in management whereby differences towards attitudes, behaviours, functioning, communication issues and cultural implications can be seen. Cross-cultural differences stem from the different backgrounds of each culture. Cultural varieties may be witnessed in the workplace, and there are other factors introduced such as reaching sales targets, meeting deadlines, working on tight budgets, which may cause conflict. Because of the differences in cultures, there might be some kind of misunderstanding among people working in the same organization due to their different values, beliefs, backgrounds, etc. For a successful management, any person should be able to work with people from different cultural backgrounds no matter what their cultural orientation is.An evidence on this is the successful management of many western companies operating in different parts of the world such as the Middle East and they come up with good managerial results.
