This discussion has three parts.
Leadership varies widely by culture and personality. An international organization with locations in several countries must balance the local customs and cultures with those of the primary culture of the organization’s headquarters.
- Discuss what you believe would be the different organizational culture and local culture aspects that you would have to take into consideration if your company was expanding into Germany?
- Would the consideration be different if the company expanded into Japan?
- Give specific examples that would affect the organizational culture in both of these countries taking into consideration that the organizational headquarters is in the United States.
