Culture and Management
(Author is Dr. Kati Laine-Sveiby unless indicated)
Here you will find a couple of articles and books about the problems and solutions applied by businesses in cross-cultural contact, with special emphasis on the Nordic neighbours Finland and Sweden. Even though they all date from around the time of my doctoral dissertation (incl), I still get frequent requests from both students and practitioners for them. Since they can mainly be found only in libraries, I hope that publishing them on the net will make them easier accessible to those wishing to acquaint themselves with them.
