Abstract

This paper reports research that test ed the extrapolative and interrelated nature of a two-dimensional bipolar taxonomy based on a manager's value orientations linked to,(i) National Identity and (ii) Cross-Border Business Focus. The taxonomy provides a basis for sourcing information as to the potential cultural and business suitability ofmanagers for cross-border assignments.Three value dimensions were identified on both elements of the taxonomy, and i nitial results were reported in Fish, Bhanugopan and Cogin (2008 ' in press). In addition,CFA and canonical correlations provided an initial evaluation as to the measurement fit between the constructs; and identified significant relationships.A Structural Equation Model (LISREL 8.80) is presented which examines the set of identified dimensions . Results were shown to be significant (p < .001); indicating asound fit between the theoretical model, and the empirical findings.Findings appear to support the application of the taxonomy as a source important information as to the cultural and business suitability of managers for (i) cross borderassignments per se; as well as , (ii) different types of cross-border assignments.
