The Human-Side of Regional Competitiveness
In this allegedly globalized world, do national cultural characteristics still make a difference for management?
This workshop will focus on the current status of cross-cultural differences in the CEE region. We will present the results of our TARGET - CEU EXPAT Study 2015 of how over 1100 senior expatriate managers view current local management culture in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. A host of important and challenging issues will be discussed, including:
What has changed since 'TARGET Expat Study 2009' ? What are the overall trends in CEE, how do the various countries differ in terms of management practices?
Which country is best for team work? Where does local management deal best with unexpected situations? Where is local management the most organized and efficient? Is use of humor more important in Hungary than in Poland? Are Romanians better in interpersonal skills than Bulgarians? Do managers in Slovakia or the Czech Republic understand better their competitive markets? In which country do we find the most hard-working local managers and where do language problems still cause barriers to business?
Most importantly: what are the concrete implications for doing business successfully?
We will have a rich and highly competent panel of academic and professional experts discussing their recent observations and recommendations.
