Strategies for Multicultural Management: Communication and a Common Set of Values
Castaneda, Mario E.; Bateh, Justin
Journal of International Education Research, v9 n1 p41-46 2013
In the last 30 years, there has been a shift towards using multicultural strategies. The constant shifts taking place in multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multinational workforces indicate that both administrators of these organizations and higher education practices must evolve to adapt to needs for changing skill sets. In the future, multicultural management practices will continue to impact the way that businesses reach out to various stakeholders. Multicultural management strategies can be effective in creating a unique work environment that embraces various attributes of the culture groups comprising the workforce. To meet these challenges, leaders must be trained and educated to develop flexibility, understanding, and acceptance of alternate values when working in foreign locations or multi-national organizations. Moreover, they should be open to new ideas. Trends indicate that multicultural management strategies will become more common based on a central language, technological enhancements of communication, and establishing new traditions based on a combination of cultural values designed to reduce conflict and increase collaboration.
