Objectives
The aim of this assignment is to expose learners to the information offered by the Canadian Centre for Cross Cultural Effectiveness and apply this information to the ideas of Geert Hofstede.
Instructor Comments
When completing these exercises one might also want to think about the real life applications of Hofstede’s dimensions and national culture characteristics. In other words show how can they be used in practice.
Bing (2004) suggests a strong role in the area of training and company orientation initiatives. For example, when orienting new employees, they can be offered an overview of cultural differences and how they may influence communications and other transactions between various parts of a company. In regards to multicultural workplaces, models can be provided and examples offered of the specific influence of culture on transactions within multicultural work environments. Employees who are relocating internationally can be offered an understanding of their own cultural preferences and those of the country of assignment. Finally, nuanced global business practices can be developed such as communication protocols for working across countries.
