Robust Imitation Strategies

Sudharshan, D. ; Furrer, Olivier ; Arakoni, Ramesh A

In: Managerial and Decision Economics, 2015, vol. 36, p. 139-157

In: Management International Review, 2020, vol. 60, p. 287-314

Many single-country studies have examined compatibility between the individual values of the employee and organizational cultural values, typically referred to as person-organization (P-O) fit. However, little progress has been made in understanding whether P-O fit relationships generalize across countries and, if so, whether and how societal values impact this relationship. Because of this...
