Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to provide a mature reflection upon the work of Hofstede by tracking various subtleties in the evolution of his thought and dispelling prevalent misconceptions. Design/methodology/approach – The goal of the paper is achieved by analyzing Hofstede’s output from 1970 to the present day in parallel with contemporary research and criticism.
