Abstract

The aim of this paper is to assess the various factors affecting the management systems in Nigeria and how to mitigate the negative effects. It reconnoiters the origin and development of contemporary management in the country and the challenges today managers face in a multi-cultural and multi-lingua society. Nigeria is assailed by factors of disunity and snaillike development which alter the essentials of management theories. Leveraging Geert Hofstede’s six cultural models and its empirical studies on Nigeria’s cultural conditioning and its practical insinuations. Geert Hofstede’s models provide a framework for understanding the impact of cultural differences of management of different countries, the comprehensive studies evaluate how corporate management is influenced by culture. This paper builds on academic contributions on comparative management, comparing the western management culture of United States of America and United Kingdom systems to that of Nigeria.  It reveals the extent to which culture limits the effectiveness of practical managerial concepts in corporate Nigeria.

Key words: Management, System, Culture, differences, society.
