From the introduction:

This report presents the findings of an empirical study conducted with interview partners from globally operating companies on the topic of transcultural management.

For globally operating firms, the question is how transcultural management can be lived and sustained in daily business. Therefore, the objective of this project is to further enhance the understanding of transcultural management practices within these kinds of firm by analyzing the status quo. For this purpose, data was collected from two global firms from different industries through explorative case study research, which mainly consisted of document analysis and interviews, conducted at subsidiaries of those firms based in Germany, India and Singapore. In this way, the internal perspectives of those companies on questions on transcultural management practices could be observed and analyzed. Distinct focus areas were selected during this research process, namely Corporate Culture and Values, Global Human Resources, Diversity Management, Compliance Management, Integrity Management and Leadership Traits.

To give the reader a holistic view on transcultural management and, specifically, transcultural learning, the report begins with a brief theoretical introduction to the field. Then, the methodology of the research project and the sample are described. Following that, the findings of the interviews are presented per focus area and region, starting with Europe and continuing with Asia. Finally, we present a short comparison of the findings per region and end the report with a brief conclusion and an outlook for possible further research.
