Culture forms a complex framework of national, organizational and professional attitudes and values. In this text, the authors report the results of their ongoing exploration of the influences of culture in two professions - aviation and medicine. Their focus is on commercial airline pilots and operating room teams. Within these two environments, they show the effects of professional, national and organizational cultures on individual attitudes, values and team interactions. Interweaved with contributions from a range of practitioners from Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas, as well as case studies and practical examples, the book is designed to be accessible to practitioners and managers wishing to improve their own organizations, and to researchers with an interest in gaining a greater understanding of the types of culture.
