'The major opportunities for multinational business lie in Asia. This book argues persuasively that these opportunities will not be fully realized unless companies optimize their use of human intelligence in ways that are sensitive to Asian culture and environment. It backs up its message by showing ways in which it can be achieved.' - John Child, Professor of Commerce, University of Birmingham, Visiting Professor, University of Hong Kong
'Much has been written and I suspect even more said about the much heralded 'Asia-Pacific Century', Asia's recent problems, its reamurgance and indeed Asia's ongoing importance as a business region. In respect of this, the appearance of this book is both welcome and timely. Importantly though, the cultural and human resource management issues and challenges raised in this book are contemporary, well structured and researched and above all critical in the context of understanding and undertaking business successfully in and with Asia. I thoroughly recommend this book to all business executives and students and those seeking an informed awareness of some significant strategic considerations in the cultural make-up of Asia.' - Alan Fish, Associate Professor, Charles Sturt University, Sidney
'Human intelligence + action = knowledge. This volume is a real contribution to developing real knowledge management awareness in Asia. Knowledge-based enterprise is turning out to be the key player in global hypercompetition. The editors brought together diverse and powerful arguments - a very useful book for HRM managers everywhere.' - Milan Zeleny, Professor of Management, Fordham University, New York
'An admirable attempt to bridge academic and practitioner knowledge on human resource deployment in Asia-based businesses. Closely tuned to common and diverse cultural nuances across this vast continent.' - Oded Shenkar, Ford Chair, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University.
'An academic treatment of cultural complexity in today's world of seemingly unidimensional global trends that is well worth reading by practitioners alike. Asia is a fine example of the issue of cultural stereotypes that all too often get in the way of doing good business there. And modern concepts of knowledge management once again prove that (Western) companies have good economic reason to tread carefully when operating beyond home base. A valuable book for anyone interested in understanding the importance of knowledge in a global context.' - Daniel Dirks, Director, Allianz Management Institute, Munchen
'This excellent new book gives fresh and practical insight into the impact of culture on human resource management in the Asian context. Too often culture is dealt with in isolation form other intelligences and skills, 'Maximising Human Intelligence' helps us focus on the integration of culture into a general understanding of human drives and behaviours and gives fresh insight into the variety of cultures in Asia. It gathers together an impressive collection of people with real Asian experience, and is a must for anyone with HR decision making responsibility who needs to understand the subtleties of culture's impact on human resource issues in Asia.' - Fons Trompenaars, Managing Director, Trompenaars Hampden-Turner Group, author of Riding the Waves of Culture - Understanding Cultural Diversity in Business
'This edited book of readings examines the pivotal role of HRM in the development and deployment of global strategies. It brings together a useful and diverse range of perspectives and insights on how to bridge the cultural divide between east and west.' - Rosalie L.
