Business performance is a critical issue today in an era of global
hypercompetition. Organizations of all sizes must be concerned with
operational and human productivity which form the backbone of business
performance as well as national prosperity per Drucker (2002) and economic
growth per OECD (2015). As such, cultural factors play a key role which
include issues such as Geert Hofstede's six dimensions of national culture:
Power Distance, Uncertainty Avoidance, Individualism/Collectivism,
Masculinity/Femininity, Long/Short Term Orientation, and
Indulgence/Restraint. This publication ties all of these components
together and places them in one volume for the reader to consider regarding
future research directions in a variety of business-related fields like
operations management, productivity improvement, human resources
management, and organizational effectiveness.

This book should be published because it enhances work already completed in
the field in 2012; namely, "Cultural Variations and Business Performance:
Contemporary Globalism". The other proposed topics not covered in this 2012
book will add value to the fields of productivity and business performance
within the context of cultural influences.

Target Audience
The primary target for this publication is scholars and practitioners who
are interested in how national culture influences business performance and
productivity in global hypercompetition. The secondary target is graduate
students with the same interests.
