Western project managers frequently manage projects in Asia, which also requires them to supervise a host country project team. Successful projects require the project manager to have an understanding of the implications of any cultural differences between themselves and members of the project team in order to minimise dysfunctional work activities. This study in a single international organisation assesses the perceptions that Western project managers have about themselves and their teams concerning various cultural dimensions. The results suggest these project managers are aware of cultural differences that coincide with cultural challenges faced in their role being primarily concerned with the cultural dimensions of power, thinking, time and emotion.
