  1. Oxford dictionary defines culture as “The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively.” Each society, country, and culture have numerous nuances that can be difficult for the others to understand. Managers in today’s multicultural global environment constantly encounter cultural differences, which may create barriers in communication and eventually lead to business failures. To become a successful global manager, you need to equip yourself with necessary knowledge to develop your culture competence. For years, scholars have been studying country cultures. Several theories were developed, such as Geert Hofstede’s culture dimensions (https://geert-hofstede.com/national-culture.html) and Edward T. Hall’s cross-culture theory (http://halltheory.wikia.com/wiki/Hall's_Cross-Cultural_Theory_Wiki). Besides the websites mentioned above, you can get yourself further familiarized with those theories by checking out the following video clips:
    • Hofstede’s culture dimensions
    • Hall’s low-context and high-context theory
    Your task is to utilize Hofstede’s website at https://geert-hofstede.com/national-culture.html to first identify the scores for the six cultural dimensions of your home country. Then, choose another foreign country of your interest and compare the cultural dimensions of your select country to those of your home country.

hierarchical society. As such, individuals approve of a hierarchical order within which everybody
has a place and requires zero proof. Hierarchy within the organization is considered as echoing
intrinsic inequalities, and subordinates look up to instructions and orders from their superiors.
Similarly, for this dimension, China has a score of 80 that lies higher in the PDI rankings. The
Chinese society believes that inequalities among individuals are acceptable. There is also a lack
of protection against power misuse by superiors in the Chinese culture.
Individualism/Collectivism
For this dimension, Morocco scores 46 and hence an indication of a collectivistic society. This is
exemplified in tight and lasting devotion to in-group such as family and friends. People in
Morocco function in...
