Managing individuals and organizations successfully in turbulent and highly diverse contexts requires, among others, a better understanding of commonalities and differences of these contexts, their unique demands and their changes over time. In particular, knowledge and knowledge flows across various kinds of boundaries, interaction processes among and between different types of individual and collective actors and the role of basic assumptions and action-related values play a key role. In this special issue of Cross Cultural Management, which provides a focused academic platform for encouraging research on cross-cultural aspects of management, work and organization, we would welcome empirical and conceptual papers in the following areas:
  • Specific knowledge required for individual and organizational goal achievement in culturally mixed settings
  • Boundaries inhibiting and promoting knowledge flows
  • The role of knowledge migration for individual and organizational effectiveness
  • Different forms of knowledge migration
  • Specifics of communication processes in turbulent and culturally mixed environments
  • The role of different forms of communication in knowledge migration processes
  • New media and communication in culturally mixed settings
  • The role of mass media in knowledge migration
  • Convergence, divergence or stasis? Individual and collective values and their development over time
  • The relationship of values and culture
  • Value changes between generations -- myth, reality or ?
  • Work-related values of young graduates and their implications for organizations and societies.

The special issue welcomes papers from a broad range of theoretical and methodological positions and is open to empirical as well as conceptual contributions related to the issues of knowledge migration, communication, and value change from the perspective of cross-cultural competence and management.

Additionally, selected papers submitted to the VIIIth IACCM Conference 2009 will be invited for publication in this special issue.
