Exploring Culture is suitable for students, trainers, coaches and educators. It can be used for individual study or as a text, and it serves as an excellent partner to Geert Hofstede''s popular Cultures and Organizations.
Geert Hofstede is an international authority in the field of cross-cultural social psychology and is cofounder of the Institute for Research and Intercultural cooperation at Tilburg University where he also serves as a Senior Fellow.
