Cross-Cultural Management

This week’s discussion deals with the impact of culture on Management. To do so, we will explore two major topics: 1. Culture and it’s effects on organizations, and 2. Communicating across cultures. Include the answers to both questions within your one initial post this week.

Discussion Question #1:

What role does culture play on managers in global situations. For example, a US firm in Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Singapore or Germany would all face different problems from a cultural perspective. What about a foreign venture into North America.

Discussion Question #2:

Define “Communication Across Cultures”. Describe cultural variables in communications through examples.
