"Culture Programs," Cultural Differences, Knowledge Resources, and Their Impacts on Learning Cultures in Transnational Enterprises in China
Robak, Steffi
European Education, v46 n4 p61-81 2014
This contribution discusses selected basic theoretical principles and empirical results from my postdoctoral thesis (Robak, 2012a), which investigates the learning and educational processes of German-speaking expatriates in global enterprises in China. I start by showing that no adequately developed concepts for an integrated learning culture framework exist for transnational businesses. Next, I develop theoretic premises for accessing knowledge, learning processes, culture, and cultural differences, which form the input for an empirical analysis model. Examples of empirical results based on one typical analyzed type, the cosmopolitan nomads, are used to substantiate cultural hybrid formation processes, which influence working and learning processes and require support by transnational learning cultures.
