Titel / Title: Effective leadership in a multi-polar and multi-cultural world
Abstrakt Abstract:

More and more organizations are expanding from a local to a global market space, and it’s not
only Western enterprises that expand globally, enterprises from emerging countries are doing
the same. Especially China and India are establishing themselves as economic centers and are
rapidly becoming the new global economic superpowers.
As Western enterprises continues to establish themselves into these emerging markets, an
understanding of local culture and how it affect Western leadership practices and behavior is
key in order to become a successful leader. In the very same way as enterprises from
emerging markets need to understand the local culture when they establish themselves in
Western countries.
The aim of this thesis is to investigate what cultural factors/dimension that affect leadership in
general as well as to survey Swedish leaders operating in China and India about their
experiences and recommendations from these markets and see how all of this affect Western
leadership theories.
