The concept of a global village has been brought about by the rapid development of information technology, the global media and faster lower cost travel. We now know what is happening on the other side of the world. But does that make us a 'village'.? There are few shared values and limited intercultural understanding in today's business world. One of the challenges confronting business is how to succeed in a culturally diverse, interdependent business environment. This paper explores the significance of cultural diversity for business success and provides a framework for bringing about the necessary changes.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
