Zusammenfassung

Nach einer kurzen exemplarischen Darstellung der Bedeutung gescheiterter Veränderungsprozesse im internationalen Kontext beschreibt dieses Kapitel zunächst, wie nationalkulturelle Werte und Einstellungen das Verhalten in und von international tätigen Organisationen beeinflussen können. Es folgt eine Darstellung verschiedener Tools zum Umgang mit wichtigen Aspekten organisationaler Veränderung in internationalen Zusammenhängen. Außerdem werden Leadership-Strategien beschrieben, die sich je nach Kulturdimensionen am besten zur Umsetzung interkultureller Veränderung eignen. Es wird ferner auf für das internationale Umfeld geeignete Kommunikationsstrategien eingegangen, auf Möglichkeiten, die Veränderungsbereitschaft Angehöriger international orientierten Unternehmen durch die Schaffung eines Change-freundlichen Umfeldes zu erhöhen sowie auf das Potenzial einer Transformational Leadership, die Innovationsbereitschaft zu steigern. Das Kapitel schließt mit einer tabellarischen Zusammenfassung der besprochenen wesentlichen Einsichten in Aspekte der organisationalen Veränderung in internationalen Zusammenhängen.
