In addition to the cultural models discussed so far, examining clusters of countries that share similar values can be useful for international managers. One of the most extensive studies resulting in country clusters was carried out by Ronen and Shenkar (1985). This was a synthesis of previous research and identified eight clusters of countries (see Exhibit 9.4).
