Question Description

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.
