On Feb. 22 at 9 am, the DCA’s Distinguished Lecture Series will offer a lecture titled “Does National Culture Matter in Management?” presented by St. Norbert College assistant professor of management Dr. Jamie O’Brien.
O’Brien’s lecture explores five dimensions of national culture that have an impact on how organizations might manage most effectively across countries: power distance, individualism, masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, and long- versus short-term focus. In the era of globalization, competitive advantage is at a premium, and how to manage people remains a differentiating factor. Understanding how national culture affects management style can be a key strategy for organizations in the United States, especially in overseas expansion.
O’Brien’s lecture is free to the public (goodwill donations accepted). Refreshments from Base Camp Coffee Shop will be available for purchase.
The DCA box office, located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek, is open Monday through Friday, 12 to 5 pm. For more information call 920.868.2728 or visit dcauditorium.org.
