These transactions and collaborations take on various forms export-import trade, co-innovation, consultancy services  and sub-contracting, business process outsourcing (BPO), and direct foreign investment which are often interrelated  Direct foreign investment is carried out in varied forms, including wholly owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, and equity acquisition.

Manage Cross-Cultural Differences

If you wish to reach foreign buyers or sellers or need to bring joint venture projects to a successful outcome, you must be culturally competent. You must understand intercultural communication and effectiveness if you wish to avoid such serious problems as:

  • Unmet commitments from suppliers;

  • Stalled joint projects, deals coming undone;

  • Frequent miscommunications, failed meetings, and unanswered routine communications;

  • Low productivity.

According to Geert Hofstede, cultures both national and organizational differ along many dimensions. Four of the most important are:

Directness (get to the point versus imply the messages)

Hierarchy (follow orders versus engage in debate)

Consensus (dissent is accepted versus unanimity is needed)

Individualism (individual winners versus team effectiveness)... More
