Managing Multicultural teams

Abstract : This chapter offers a synthesis on the management and function of multicultural teams. In the pfirst part, we show that such teams vary widely, and propose a typology for their main configurations. Indeed, no manager can pretend that all multicultural teams call for the same oversight, especially when many of their particularities do ot reflect cultural issues. In the second section, we examine how cultural differences affect work in groups, and argue that managers need to go beyond their members' viewpoints to understand the coplexity of interculturla dynamics. In the third and final part, we will discuss how firms overcome cultral barriers and encourage team efficiency.
