About this book

This book provides a systematic view of current and future research perspectives on intercultural knowledge sharing and offers a model for the growth of organizational knowledge in the digital age. The author puts forward multidisciplinary and multi-paradigmatic approaches to offer an updated view on the best practices towards international management. With insights on the opportunities and limitations of the use of digital and social media to facilitate intercultural knowledge sharing in business, the book explores the evolution of research on the topic, taking into account the consequence of “glocalization” as well as technological innovation and the evolution of organizational strategies and structures. Intercultural Knowledge Sharing in MNCs will be of use to scholars of management and organizational studies, as well as managers of international businesses interested in knowledge sharing, as it delivers an invaluable model which aims to conciliate diversity and inclusion, global and local knowledge, technological innovation and humanism.

Reviews

“This book addresses one of the key tasks in global business – knowledge sharing across cultures.  Maimone proposes a systematic framework covering not only a wide range of domains in conventional intercultural interaction, but also the emerging phenomenon of a digital world. I highly recommend it to those who are interested in cross-cultural issues.” (Yih-Teen Lee, Professor of Managing People in Organizations, IESE Business School)

“Humans share knowledge: I share therefore I know. Individuals, organizations and networks navigate knowledge spaces. Galaxies of ideas migrate from information to knowledge to know-how. Fabrizio Maimone follows Max Boisot in prompting corporate actors  to break emergent codes of spontaneous and creative democracy of knowledge. Let a thousand Jobs and Wozniaks bloom.” (Slawomir Magala, Professor, Rotterdam School of Management)

“Understanding and managing multinational corporations and other transnational institutions has become ever more challenging. Added to the ever greater multinationality of organizational teams and accelerated cross-national flows of goods, services and ideas is: on the one hand, the explosive use of social media enabling ever more intercultural interaction; but on the other, the regeneration and growth of nativism hostile to non-native persons and ideas. How to make sense of, and operate in, this complexity? Maimone has produced a must-read guide - remarkable for both the depth of its analysis and for the astonishing range of multi-national scholarship it brings to unpacking the intricacy of contemporary intercultural drivers, developments, contradictions, and puzzles.” (Brendan McSweeney, Professor, School of Management, Royal Holloway, University of London)

"An important contribution to the debate of humane organizing in a digital world. Fabrizio Maimone that forces us to reflect on the interconnectedness of human beings and nature and how we can evolve to use glocal knowledge better to manage organizations. The digital challenges is a human challenge that will require information, knowledge and wisdom." (Michael Pirson, Associate Professor of Management Systems, Fordham University, and Research Fellow, Harvard University)
