Abstrakty
W obliczu szybkich zmian struktury społecznej i technologii zarządzanie międzykulturowe uznano za tendencję ogólnoświatową. O ile istnieje wiele przypadków i obszerna literatura na temat zarządzania doświadczeniami międzykulturowymi z perspektywy Zachodu, niewiele opracowań dotyczy zarządzania międzykulturowego w kontekście azjatyckim. Celem badań jest analiza doświadczeń międzykulturowych w zarządzaniu zaawansowanymi technologiami oraz ich wkładu w powodzenie projektu w sytuacji przekraczania granic. Autor analizuje przypadek polskiego inżyniera Władysława Turowicza, który odegrał istotną rolę w tworzeniu Pakistańskich Sił Powietrznych i Pakistańskiego Programu Kosmicznego (SUPARCO). Omawia życie osobiste i zawodowe Władysława Turowicza oraz zwraca uwagę na ważne kulturowe aspekty zarządzania zaawansowanymi technologiami. (abstrakt oryginalny)

With social structure and technology rapidly changing, cross-cultural management has been regarded as a worldwide trend. While there have been many cases and much literature on management of cross-cultural experiences from a Western perspective, few have discussed cross-cultural management in an Asian context. The goal of this research is to analyze the cross-cultural experience in high technology management and how it leads a boundary spanner toward project success. The researcher analyses the case of Polish engineer Władysław Turowicz, who played a vital role in the formation of Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan's Space Program (SUPARCO). The researcher has discussed the personal and professional life of Władysław Turowicz and highlights some important cultural perspectives regarding high technology management. (original abstract)
