Understanding cultural differences can be the descisive factor in success or failure in International Business

In this short introduction podcast, we explain the new set-up of our podcast: We’ll take a look at the impact that cultural differences have on doing International Business.

Some topics that you can expect are:

  • Why the US is Sometimes Ahead and Sometimes Behind (Airport Tech.) 
  • Direct and Unfiltered Feedback: The Problem (Dutch) 
  • North versus South (America, The Predictability Dimension) 
  • Trial and Error or Engineering (German versus American) 
  • Fair Warning or Caricaturing (The Undutchables)? 
  • Do as The Romans Do (but not in Italy – KLM and Alitalia) 
  • The Costliest International Failures 
  • Let Me Summarize (Please Don’t), North European vs South European 
  • The Far East is Not Far if You’re There (something on Asia) 
  • Something related to fake news? 
  • The rudest people on earth (Dutch, Russian) 
  • The most polite … 
  • What dominates: Company culture or National culture? 
  • How does personality relate to one’s national culture? 
  • Can you get “rid” of your national culture (e.g., when you live in another country)? 
  • The “superiority notion” when it comes to you and the “other” culture. 
  • Unexpected cultural correlations: the use of deodorant, gambling/lottery/scratch cards. 
  • How marketing is not culturally neutral (e.g., selling a Volvo station car in the US versus Sweden) 
  • Humor in different cultures and what you maybe should not do (e.g., being/going over the top being Dutch) 
  • Project management in different countries/cultures. 
  • How to manage multi-cultural virtual teams? 
  • What about the fifth dimension of Hofstede’s model (and why rename some other dimensions)? 
  • Assessments – including cultural preference or cultural competence – value-adding or hocus pocus. 
  • Covid-19 (and other non-related health issues) and cultural differences.
