Polycentric attitude

A polycentric attitude is the view that employees in the host country (the foreign country in which the organization is doing business) know the best work approaches and practices for running their business.

 Managers with this attitude view every foreign operation as a different and difficult to understand. Thus, they’re likely to let employees in the host country figure out how best to do things.
