    GLOBE Project 2020
    Summary
    The GLOBE 2020 research project is an extension of over 20 years of collaborative work conducted by the GLOBE research team. In the 1990s, the GLOBE (Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness) project examined the relationships among societal culture, leadership, and organizational practices in collaboration with more than 200 researchers from 62 societies. GLOBE has become one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of its kind in the social sciences. In this phase of GLOBE, called GLOBE 2020, we will build on the past two decades of findings and will focus on four important research questions: To what extent have the cultures of the countries in the original GLOBE study changed? And what are the major societal drivers of culture change? To answer this question, we have doubled the number of target countries, and we will use the original GLOBE instruments with a few additional questions to survey primarily middle managers. Of course there are many possible drivers of culture change but the independent variables below represent some of the larger 'buckets' of possible culture change drivers.
