This monograph presents various approaches to understanding the multiple levels, layers, and definitions of culture, cross-cultural research, cross-cultural competence, the role of culture in organizations, organizational culture, and the role of multiple culture layers in individual workers' workplace attitudes, performance, and general experiences. Inaugurating the new series SpringerBriefs on Culture, Organizations, and Work, it establishes both fundamental and controversial ideas related to the myriad ways of studying these topics. It highlights the wide variety of conceptual approaches for studying culture, organization and work and brings to light some of the critical questions related to culture (at all units and levels of analysis) and their effect on both the workplace and the worker in order to present a coherent educational resource for practitioners and researchers alike.

"This monograph is well organized and written. ... although the monograph is geared towards the role of culture in organizations and work, much of the material relates to culture and its role in research, more generally speaking. In this light, I personally plan to include it as recommended reading for my graduate course in introductory research methods in psychology." (Samuel T. Gontkovsky, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (37), September, 2017)
