When you want to succeed in collaborating across diverse cultures & geographical Sites.
In every population there is a set of norms, behaviors, belief-systems and habits that exists in accordance with the national culture and context they are operating in. If you do business across different time zones, geographical locations and national cultures, you should know how the boundaries affect the collaboration.
This course is a dynamic training program and provides knowledge and exercises on how you manage differences in culture and work-conditions in a global organization. The purpose of the course is to enhance the value of working with different cultures in different locations and to learn about the boundaries of global work in order to improve communication and thereby develop the participants’ global collaboration. Global work is about boundary-spanning and focus will be not only on culture as a potential area of discontinuities but also on other boundaries such as time-zone differences, distribution of power, headquarter vs. subsidiary dynamics and technology mediated communication.
