Neuware - Multicultural and multinational teams have become an important strategic and structural element of organizational work in our globalized world today. These teams are demonstrating their importance from the factory floors to the boardrooms of contemporary organizations. The emergence of multicultural teams is evident across a variety of organizations in the private, public, and civil society sectors. These developments have led to an increasing interest in the theory and practice of multicultural teams. Management educational and training programs are giving increasing attention to these developments. At the same time, there is emerging interest in research about and study of multicultural teams. This book emerged from our teaching, research, and consulting with multic- tural and diverse teams in multiple sectors over the last several years. In particular, we have developed and refined our ideas about the concepts in this book from teaching an advanced course called Effective Multicultural Teams in the Graduate Program at the School for International Training (SIT) in Vermont. We have learned from the rich background of students who are from, and have worked in, six con- nents, and who are, or plan to be, working in the public, educational, not-for-profit, and for-profit sectors. Additionally, we have engaged with a variety of teams through our consulting and training, providing consultation to teams in a variety of sectors and continents as they struggled to become more effective. 294 pp. Englisch.

Riassunto: Theory and Practice of Multicultural Teams (TPMT) will help students understand the most current theory and practice perspectives relevant to multicultural teams, and apply these theories as team members and/or managers, facilitators and leaders. It is designed for classroom use in management and organizational behavior courses where students at the graduate and certificate level are developing skills to work in teams. It is intended to be a core text but may be used as a supplemental text as well. TPMT is unique in that it utilizes a tri-lens approach: cultural differences, social identity, and individual personality differences. The initial four chapters written by the co-editors provide a comprehensive and integrative overview of the importance of multicultural teamwork theory and practice; current trends; a conceptual framework for team effectiveness; approaches to understanding the impact of culture, social identity and personality on teamwork; and the developmental stages of teams. The remaining chapters written by others focus on major team processes: group dynamics, leadership, communication, conflict, and problem solving/decision making. The examples and ideas are global, inclusive of all sectors, and relate to virtual and face-to-face teams. Each of the chapters contains relevant competencies, and assessments.
