Chinese and Vietnamese organisations seeking to enhance the expertise of middle and senior managers through exposure to Western management theories and practices face two basic problems. The first problem is related to the relevance of Western management theory in a high-context transitional economy. The second problem is related to the development of suitable pedagogies for the cross-cultural transfer of management theory generally. Against the background of literature on international management, the paper describes a modified case study as a basis for the effective delivery of management education in high-context cultures.
