Management theories and techniques developed in Western industrialized countries are frequently difficult to apply in the context of the Third World, and the challenges managers face in a developing country are very different from those facing their counterparts in the developed world. This volume provides an assessment of how management theories and techniques used successfully in the West can be applied in developing countries. The contributors identify the key issues which face managers in developing countries, summarize the lessons which have been learned and put forward alternative approaches better suited to conditions in the Third World. They look at the nature of the work cultures to be found in developing countries and discuss ways of working within them, focusing on work motivation and organizational leadership. They emphasize the importance of developing relevant management theories based on local conditions and circumstances. The book makes a major contribution to contemporary management theory by identifying the specific environmental-cultural dimensions that distinguish organizations operating in developing countries from those operating in developed countries. It provides an overview of the issues facing managers in developing countries and will be of interest to advanced students of organizational behaviour, comparative management, and development studies.
