Modern business is global by nature and teams are invariably composed of people from diverse cultures. Success in a multi-cultural setting relies heavily on the ability of employees and stakeholders to communicate effectively and efficiently.
When to focus on cross-cultural dynamics?
Organizations often face cross-cultural communications issues during corporate actions (mergers, acquisitions, joint-ventures) and during every day operations when integrating expats into a local office or managing international virtual teams.
