This research is an exploratory study and design to find cross-cultural impact on information systems (IS) managers’ performance, job satisfaction and managerial value, particularly on American IS and Korean expatriate IS managers in the United States in the banking industry. Through the literature review, this study attempts to find the most frequently used variables which will be used to measure the magnitude of the cross-cultural impact on those two national IS managers. Finally, this paper presents one research design, which will use the cultural variables to separate the influences of the cross-cultural impact on those IS managers from the other variables.
