France, a symbol of ''savoir vivre'', traditions, cultural heritage and centralization, of King Louis XIV and Napoleon, is still, in the twenty-first century, one of the precursors of European economic progress. Traditional in its system and structure of state bureaucracy, France remains an important pillar of European society. This book consolidates this profound culture that unfolds in the way the French go about doing business and managing companies. The study particularly compares the French culture to the Nordic cultures of Finland, Sweden and Denmark and highlights important facts that managers from these countries should consider when conducting business in France. Therefore, this book should be especially useful to professionals in the field of Management, or anyone else who may be interested in business in France.
