Organizational behavior and national culture: How “consistent?""
File
Description

This paper has two goals. Relying on Hofstede's framework, it first explores the extent to which national culture “influences"" organizational behavior among Japanese and Malaysian enterprises. Secondly, the paper tests the degree to which Japanese and Malaysian organizations can be correctly classified into their respective cultural groups based on analyzing a set of behavioral items. Results show that organizational behavior is consistent with national culture on aspects relating to power relationships and monitoring systems but not with aspects relating to social relationships and motivation systems. Results also show that power and social relationship items were most contributive to the process of correctly classifying Japanese and Malaysian enterprises into their respective cultural groups. Possible explanations for the mixed results were offered.
