Seminar details

Abstract: This talk will focus on new material to be published in the 3rd edition of his major work, Cultures and Organisations: Software of the Mind, which will appear with McGraw-Hill U.S.A.in May. It includes new aspects of long- versus short-term orientations (and scores for over 90 countries based on recent surveys) and an entirely new dimension: indulgence versus restraint, focusing on happiness and life control. Also, Professor Hofstede introduces a Darwinian explanation of the evolution of cultures, explaining the variety of cultures found in today's world.

Speaker bio: Professor Hofstede is a pioneer in the study of how values in the workplace are influenced by national culture. From 1967 to 1973, while working at IBM as a psychologist, he collected and analysed data from over 100,000 individuals from forty countries. From those results, and later additions, Hofstede developed a model that identifies five primary dimensions to differentiate cultures: power distance, collectivism vs. individualism, masculinity vs. femininity, uncertainty avoidance and long-term outlook. This work has had a huge influence on research and practice in international human resource management  in in international business more generally, and in the field of cross-cultural communication. Professor Hofstede is one of the most highly cited authors in the social sciences.
