dc.description.abstract This study explores cultural diversity and effective cultural management strategies in international construction projects. From the literature review it is clear that the management of culture is of global concern, and still to be thoroughly researched. Culture varies from between regions, countries and also between ethnic groups within one nation. It is therefore understandable that management strategies in one part of the world will not be applicable, or as effective, in another part of the word. Studies done on effective management strategies are country or region specific. It is for this reason that the researcher focuses on South African managed construction projects in Mozambique. Effective management strategies pertaining to relevant cultural factors were identified during the findings. However, the cultural knowledge, awareness, sensitivity and respect that would be expected from international managers are mostly noticeably absent. There is a wide scope for further studies in this regard. To identify cultural factors in other countries, related effective management strategies and training on how to bridge cultural differences for management teams. en_US
