Cross cultural awareness for international managers

Cross-cultural skills are a major criterion for success in the global business environment. As national culture influences management practice it is therefore imperative that international managers acquire a deeper understanding of other cultures and more effective communication. The international manager must possess both "hard" skills which are of a technical nature as well as a series of "soft" skills which are considerably more difficult to acquire.
