Description

nation-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 different set of values.

However the most important stuff to take from the book is the fact that even Western countries differ a lot.Similarly, Singapore scored lowest on uncertainty avoidance, which according to his explanation, shouldn't be as Singapore is the country with perhaps the most strict laws of all countries. Having flown 1900+ hours in a NATO staffed flying unit, I found the insights in this book invaluable for understanding the various effects of culture on cockpit etiquette and flight safety.

When reading this, he seemed to argue that the management theories from one culture *never* apply to other cultures, where I'd expect a little more caution in the conclusions (similar comment as above).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. I suggest to google some critical assessments of Hofstede so you rank this book where it really belongs. Projects funded by international agencies such as the World Bank in theory do not have this constraint, but they have to satisfy the agency’s objectives, which often also conflict with the receivers’ objectives.
