In today’s global world, successful companies and public and private institutions recognize that there are wide cultural differences around the world and these continue to heavily impact how people do business. Global institutions understand the imperative to successfully navigate the cultural gaps impacting their workforce, customers, and partners.
Differences in business practices, communication, and management styles can impact a range of interactions. Whether a large or small institution, there’s no room for error or delays—which may result from cultural misunderstandings and miscommunications. These miscues can and often do impact the bottom line.
An understanding of culture will affect a firm’s and its employees’ abilities to enter a local market; develop and maintain business relationships; negotiate successful deals; conduct sales, marketing, and advertising campaigns; provide culturally attentive customer service; and engage in manufacturing and distribution. Firms now understand the need to conduct a cultural analysis, just as they would conduct a technical or market analysis.
