Managing in a Global Environment | Parochialism

Define parochialism. Next, discuss why parochialism is a problem for U.S. managers and discuss reasons why it is important to overcome parochialism in today's business environment.

Answer:  Parochialism is the process of viewing the world solely through one's own eyes and perspectives. People with a parochial attitude do not recognize that others have different ways of living and working. Parochialism is a significant obstacle for managers working in a global business world. If managers fall into the trap of ignoring others' values and customs and rigidly applying an attitude of "ours is better than theirs" to foreign cultures, they'll find it difficult to compete with other organizations around the world that are seeking to understand foreign customs and market differences.
