Assignment 5

Module 5 – A Sample of Useful Online Information Sources for Cross Cultural Management Objectives

The aim of this assignment is to suggest sources of online information useful for managing across cultures and why they are valuable.

Instructor Comments

The websites of Kwintessential and the Centre for Inter-Cultural Learning are gifts. Their scroll down features offer the curious a quick and fascinating means to summarize a nation’s culture. The latter source is written for Canadian’s from the perspective of the host culture with a comparison to that of Canada. Of interest is that this source is an important tool used to train Canadian diplomats and government representatives prior to heading off for extended stays overseas.

These descriptions are quite extensive but are also fairly new in this form. Surprisingly, free, easily accessible and well organized information of this nature is not that easy to find. Presented in this form, both of these information sources serve as excellent vehicles for making comparisons across cultures in a fairly user friendly fashion.
