Course Details

Whether in a multinational firm in Japan or a Japanese company expanding globally, employees, middle managers and HR professionals alike face real and ongoing cross-cultural challenges.

This course focuses on cross-cultural communication issues that these professionals face in the course of their duties: training and development, performance appraisal, decision-making, conflict management and more.

The cultural value dimensions frameworks and the organizational culture framework are employed to develop cross-cultural communication strategies.
The course is built on lecture, readings, case studies and much opportunity for discussion and interaction to "talk out" and develop solutions and guidance to better manage cross-cultural challenges.
