HR – Managing Across Cultures

1) is 1500 words – Assignment Task

1. Discuss what you understand by the term ‘culture’ in the context of

international management.

2. Discuss and evaluate the main blocks to the effectiveness of culturally

diverse workforces.

N.B.

In addressing the task you should use examples from organisations and / or case

studies you are familiar with.

You are required to draw reference to the insights from key cross cultural

researchers such as Hofstede, Trompenaars and Hall and other Cross Cultural

theorists that you may have read about in your research.

2) Final Report (upto 4000 words – but will accept 3500) – Assignment Task

Scenario

Consider the cross cultural management implications for an organisation from

your home country setting up a satellite operation in another country (of your

choice).

N.B. You should assume this will result in a culturally diverse workforce.

You will need to critically evaluate the implications which may affect:

1. Leadership and motivation, communications and negotiating, decision

making and organisational relationships generally;

2. The development of cross cultural teams that can perform effectively as a

unit and be capable of adapting to changes in the external environment;

3. Finally, reflect on the relative importance of your own national cultural

background to understanding others from differing cultures. What lessons

can you learn about working in a multicultural environment?

Important Notes-Please READ

You will need to apply the theories of Hofstede, Trompenaars and Hall. You

should also bring in other Cross Cultural theorists that you may have read about

in your research. Page 3 of 5

Each question carries equal marks. The assignment is assessed holistically in

terms of your response to the questions and scenario.
