Abstract:
Building a Team Changing the Figures The Mess PT Kalimantan Pulp (A) Safety First? The Wife's Tale Workshop Incident A collection of eight cases that explore the cross-cultural tensions arising from the use of expatriate managers of many nationalities interacting with local workers during the building of a pulp mill in Indonesia. Among the issues covered are safety, team building, communication problems, conflict resolution, ethical dilemmas and the need to adapt management styles.

Pedagogical Objectives:
To illustrate the problems in managing multi-cultural teams in an Asia-Pacific environment. More specifically, the series takes issues encountered both by the expatriates and by corporations involving project management in a developing country, e.g. the problems of tensions between cultures, expatriate-local conflicts, bribery and corruption, multi-cultural team building, leadership style. Each case is short and can be used separately or combined with others.

Abstract:
Marks & Spencer dominates the retailing industry in Britain. Yet the future of the firm is by no means secure. International expansion into Canada and Europe during the 1970s had disappointing results, and the UK industry is undergoing deep structural and competitive changes. Case (A) describes the business and social culture of the firm and its development over the past 100 years, inviting analysis of why this firm has been successful. It then outlines the failure of the international diversification. The case is set in 1984, when the first non-family, non-Jewish executive took over the Chairmanship.

Pedagogical Objectives:
To offer a vehicle for the analysis of organisational culture To focus on how change in corporate culture can be managed in a planned or evolutionary way

Keywords:
Organisational Culture, Management of Organisational Change, International Strategies, Management of Innovation, Human Relations, Organisational Values, Organisational Effectiveness, Organisational Adaptation
