Uncertainty Avoidance in International Business
The Hidden Cultural Dimension You Need to Understand When Doing Business Overseas
This podcast is something different from the regular Interview podcasts that I do.
I wanted to pay more attention to Hofstede’s fourth and most difficult dimension: Uncertainty Avoidance.
Time and again explaining this dimension is difficult to do.
A lot of people link it only to official rules. But that is not enough. Uncertainty Avoidance covers a whole lot more.
Listen to this podcast and find out what else is linked to this complex cultural dimension.
