Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to determine what kind of modifications of the French management style a french expatriated manager has to implement within his company when arriving in Sweden. The purpose is to analyze which role the culture plays in the interactions between the French manager and his Swedish employees. The paper is based on theories of intercultural management established by professor Hofstede but also on more recent studies on the particularities of Swedish management such as the constant seek to attain consensus and to manage by objectives. Other theories conserning french managment style and the intercultural manager have also been used. A deep qualitative study has been effected via interviews with French professionals working in Sweden. It has made it possible to understand which kind of changes in management style that had to be carried through by these expatriated managers in order to better manage in Sweden. The conclusion that has been drawn is that they had to adapt their French management style and in certain ways put in place a more Swedish leadership to better lead the French company in Sweden: the managment became a mix of a French and a Swedish style.
