Managing Across Cultures

HR – Managing Across Cultures
Order Description
I have two assignments, for the Managing Across Cultures Module (HR) –
I spoke with Emma in live support who advised me to send my request as one order – but it is to be split into my 2 papers. I would like to send across my assignment is requests in two documents which specify the full assignment requirements –
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.
