International and Intercultural Communication
After reviewing section 2.4 of the text titled International and Intercultural Interpersonal Communication, visit The Hofstede Centre (http://geert-hofstede.com/national-culture.html) and continue to explore national cultural dimensions. Using the navigation bar, hover over the “Cultural Tools” item, and then click on “Country Comparison” from the drop-down menu. Here you will choose two countries to compare and contrast in terms of cultural dimensions.
Develop a two-page, APA-formatted paper that addresses the following:
- Describe how the two countries are similar in terms of Hofstede’s five cultural dimensions.
- Describe how the two countries are different in terms of Hofstede’s five cultural dimensions.
- Given a scenario where two organizations, one located in each country, are to do business with each other, provide recommendations that would be beneficial in helping management address communications in terms of the different cultural perspectives.
Your paper must be two pages (not including title and reference pages) and must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide. You must cite at least two scholarly sources in addition to the textbook. This is the text book Baack, D. (2012). Managerial communications. San Diego, CA: Bridgepoint Education, Inc.
