As mentioned in Part I "Global Business: Cultural and Behavioral Norms", today’s workplace takes us all over the world both figuratively and literally. Knowing something about the various cultures and what to expect when doing business with those in other countries will help with negotiation, cooperation, and communication in general. The more you know, the easier it becomes to be successful in your dealings with those from other countries and cultures.
In Part II, there is a short review of some of the concepts explored in Part I, and then we offer country-culture specifics as they apply to working with (and for) people in several other countries. Remember, please, when we talk about statistical averages – they are generalizations about a country, not about any individual or company in specific.
Part II covers over 30 countries including France, Germany, Great Britain, China, India and Japan.
Obviously, countries are vast, and have thousands of people and thousands of businesses. The information being offered is about the main values and behaviors of each of the countries we are visiting. We would expect both similarities and differences depending on the location within the country. In the USA, for example, we have significant regional differences between those on the East Coast, Midwest, South and West.
Learning what people believe, how they think, and how they make decisions will aid you in your working relationships with others, improve your reputation, increase productivity, teamwork, and cooperation – all of which will improve your organization’s bottom line.
