Resumé

The chapter is predicated on the understanding that previous studies have accorded limited attention to the role of home country culture and firm characteristics in individual expatriates’ competence development process. It therefore discusses how national cultural characteristics influence Danish expatriates’ global orientation, enhance their adaptation capacity, and prepare them for their assignments abroad. The discussions suggest that expatriates from homogenous cultures that have been economically successful tend to adopt ethnocentric approaches to their transfer of values and knowledge to their host organizations. Furthermore, cultures that are associated with less respect for authority and less regard for organizational status tend to encourage participatory management style globally
