Personality and Strategy the relationship between top managers and project managers
The perspectives of the relationship between personality and strategy are presented with four articles. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is used to classify managers’ behavior and particularly cognitive style. Strategy is analyzed using Miles and Snow’s organizational typology. The central question is: does the cognitive style influence the strategy type managers and top management teams prefer? Proposed model of the relationship between the cognitive style and the strategy type is presented and evaluated using empirical data which was collected from managers in thirteen different spas. In addition, top management teams and their views of the viable strategies are analyzed. On the whole, the results support the importance of the self-understanding of the managers and top management teams. This should be taken into consideration in leadership and strategy trainings as well as in actual strategic decision-making situations. This book is especially suitable for leaders, consultants and business students.

Mind the Gap the relationship between top managers and project managers
In this book we address the complex cooperation between physicians and managers in hospitals by studying their deeply embedded professional differences and its influences on hospital performance. We describe the results of our culture gap questionnaire. With the “GAHP-questionnaire” we can quantitatively elaborate on the size and content of differences between physicians and managers. We apply intergroup theory to the hospital context in order to add a perspective into the known complex relationship between physicians and managers in hospitals. The stereotypical gap questionnaire enables quantitative measurement of the strength and size of stereotypical gaps between physicians and managers. Furthermore we analyse the intragroup variability within groups of physicians and managers in order to identify subgroups that can be focused on when setting out to improve cooperation with the other group to implement organisational change. In the last chapter we statistically associate the cooperation to quality performance in order to search for areas of performance that are influenced by their complex cooperation.

Assessing Leader Behaviors of Project Managers Associated On LinkedIn the relationship between top managers and project managers
Project leadership has been shown to increase project performance, yet a review of the literature suggested that project managers may prefer alternatives to the leadership behavior shown to produce the highest levels of project performance and that three situational variables may influence this choice. In this book, 175 project managers from 39 countries completed the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire over a 6-week period to assess their leadership behavioral style and examine if certification, gender, and country of employment (culture) influenced their preference. Testing this data with non-parametric statistical tests revealed initiating structure was preferred to consideration and balance, and that significant, strong relationships existed between preference and certification, gender, and culture. Reviewing these results added clarity to the project leadership literature, advanced the behavioral leadership literature, and suggested that organizations could modify project manager training programs to create leader behavior awareness, developing competencies based on initiating structure primarily and consideration secondarily, prepare project managers for certification.

Challenges for New Managers Undertaking International Assignments the relationship between top managers and project managers
Globally it is known that international managers are a valuable resource to all organisations. However, it is relatively unknown what challenges these managers face in reality and how to manage such challenges in order to retain their skills, knowledge and expertise within MNEs.This study attempted to understand the challenges facing new international managers in order to determine whether a gap exists between what new international managers on assignment are actually facing and what experienced managers perceive they are facing.An exploratory research approach using a qualitative methodology was followed using a sample comprising of six new international managers and 24 experienced international managers. Findings suggest that a gap exists between the challenges new international managers are facing in reality, and the assumptions and perceptions of experienced international managers. It is recommended that the MNE review current human resources recruitment and management policies, implement hiring policies based on skills and competencies beyond technical ability, and establish cross-cultural programmes to address the challenges facing new international managers.

Transcultural Project Leadership the relationship between top managers and project managers
Projects are temporary organizations and a lack of effective project leadership has been cited as a major cause of costly project failure, overriding most organizational factors. In the rapidly globalizing 21st century, the challenge of project leadership is compounded further by cross-cultural factors as projects around the world are being increasingly peppered with multi-ethnic participants. The overarching question underpinning this study is: What are the key behavioral characteristics for effective transcultural project leadership of projects composed of multi-ethnic teams? This novel global research of successful international project managers, program managers, consultants, and team members examines the confluence of organizational leadership, cross-cultural management, project management, and team dynamics to identify behavioral patterns likely to result in effective transcultural project leadership. For project managers, program managers, and other project practitioners—as well as international managers across various industries—this study yields ‘best practice’ guidelines for successful project leadership, training, and evaluation in transcultural project environments.

UNDERSTANDING DISCURSIVE RESOURCES AND STRATEGIC DECISION MAKING the relationship between top managers and project managers
This book represents an attempt to understand the dynamics of the identity work in the context of the challenges top managers have to address. Managers'' discursive resources influence what they notice and the interpretation of what is noticed. Their ability to understand and challenge their discursive resources is crucial because the persistence of categories and metaphors that depicts a globalized world where they do not have capacity to react may explain the decline of their organizations. The stories they tell ground their emotions and their identities and then they see the world and themselves through them. Hence, their discursive resources and their emotions impact the long term survival of their organizations through the strategic exchange between top managers and organizations.

The Perceived Difference between Male and Female Managers the relationship between top managers and project managers
Whether men and women behave differently in managerial roles is a much debated question. Many scholars developed different theories about the impacts of gender roles in understanding differences between male and female managers. Most studies also proved that gender role stereotyping resulted differences between male and female managers leadership style, value systems, effectiveness, career advancements, etc. Thus, this book deeply investigates the perceived differences between male and female managers on the job by using managers self and subordinates’ evaluation. The study was targeted five randomly selected ministry offices found in Addis Ababa. The already developed Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSI) and Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) were used as data collection tools. An analysis of variance (ANOVA) on statistical measures was performed based on the number of responses obtained from male female managers self and subordinates evaluations. The most interesting findings revealed in this work are the presence of gender differences in leadership style, emergence, effectiveness, and acceptance.Finally, appropriate training and development programs are recommended.
