Abstract/Summary As culture and a global organizational environment are becoming significant management issues in the globalization of business, the creation and development of socialization processes is vital for continuous learning and adjustment of inpatriate managers. This paper examines a positive relationship between two distinct socialization processes, institutional and individualized socialization tactics, and socio-cultural and psychological adjustment, respectively. This relationship is suggested to be moderated by cultural distance. Bandura’s (1977) social-learning theory is utilized to explain the change in behavior of the inpatriate’s internal and external environment to form a new set of behaviors while adjusting to a new organizational culture.
