Abstract: We examine managerial work values and subsequent behaviors of Vietnamese managers that foreign investors may face doing business in Vietnam. To establish a global reference-point, we compare the managerial values of Vietnamese managers with those of Chinese and U.S. managers. The findings from this exploratory study, while not always intuitive, should help foreign investors to better understand Vietnam. Furthermore, the study raises important theoretical issues concerning Individualism and Collectivism as cross-cultural measures.© 1999 JIBS.
