Imagine you work for a U.S. company and you are travelling to a foreign country to conduct business with another company. I am your manager, and I have concerns about your business trip. We have had issues with employees coming across as “ethnocentric” in the past. Your assignment is to write a memo to me demonstrating you understand business etiquette, customs, and protocol for doing business in a foreign country.
Use www.executiveplanet.com to research the business etiquette, customs, and protocol for doing business in the country of your choice. You may select any country EXCEPT the United States. You MUST use www.executiveplanet.com for your research.
In the memo, provide at least 10 examples of things you will do (or not do) while conducting business in that country and provide the reasons why (information provided by executiveplanet.com). Topics may include: appointments, business dress, conversation, addressing others, gift giving, negotiating, entertaining, and behavior. Remember: your information and activities should pertain to business.
For full credit, you MUST provide 10 separate examples ( you may number or bullet your examples) AND each example must include your reason WHY from the Executive Planet website.
