Cultural Dimensions in Management Styles

Hofstede's 5 dimensions to me determine whether a society is masculine or feminine. Our management style is determined by which type of society in which we function; feminine or masculine.
I may be wrong but it seems to me that most developing countries are feminine and industrialised nations are masculine and this is what determines the difference in management styles in the developing world and why IMF and other interventions do not help to solve our problems.

Hofstede's 5 Dimensions in Third World Countries

Hofstede in his study on various societies looked at femininity or masculinity among other areas.
The developmental context of a number of countries especially the so called 'third world countries' (the Caribbean for example) have their history steeped on a masculine structure.
Jamaica in Hofstede's study came out to be a masculine in nature, however, things have changed drastically since the 1970s, Jamaica has had a female prime minister and the majority of leaders in the Jamaican communities are female which shows how the structural dimensions have changed.
