Managing cultural complexity in organizations - a public lecture by Jasmin Mahadevan

Time and Date: 11:40-13:10, 4th of December (Tuesday)
Venue: Sóház building, basement, auditorum 2.



Today’s companies and organizations are culturally complex. National culture, societal cultures, organizational cultures and so on are intertwined with functional, professional, team, tenure-based cultures and many more facets. This lecture provides an overview on the existing literature on how to manage cultural complexity and related multiple cultural identities in today’s organizations, drawing from her own empirical research in global and international companies. The lecturer will focus on Asia, this is where most of her research originates from.
