Abstract

The Arab world has been a centre of international attention since the discovery there of oil in the early 1990s. Issues related to Arab management styles, practices and work orientations are neither known nor understood outside the region. Cross cultural negotiations and organization development activities are therefore carried out less effectively than they otherwise could be. Addresses the application of organizational development (OD) in the Arab world, specifies the peculiarity of the change process in the Arab world, and identifies certain societal qualities and their implications for OD practitioners/consultants.
