Culture for Business Tool
Designed for business travellers and international managers, it allows the user to compare their personal cultural profile (and/or with another country and countries your profile is similar to) with all the countries included in the database.
It provides users with detailed information on the differences across national cultures, including specific tips for meetings, management and negotiations. The tool also includes the cultural differences in Gender and Generation because to leverage the strength of diversity, one should move beyond nationality by incorporating the multiple layers of values that form perceptions and guide behaviours.
The tool is based on Fons Trompenaars’ Seven Dimension of Culture model and is supported by data on the cultures of over 140 countries.
What is the purpose?
To provide a better understanding of cultural differences, the reasons for cultural differences, and most importantly to increase users’ cross-cultural management, communication and cooperation capabilities.
When should it be used?
It can be used as a self‐learning tool to understand and deal with cultural differences in business, but it can also be used as a culture encyclopaedia. Whenever a cross‐cultural issue appears, this online tool can be used to look for immediate answers.
What makes the tool unique?
Tips are dependent on delta between individual and country of choice scores.
Compare your profile with other countries or country on country. Understand similarities your profile has to other national cultures.
