Here you will choose two countries to compare and contrast in terms of cultural dimensions.
Develop a two-page, APA-formatted paper that addresses the following:
- Describe how the two countries are similar in terms of Hofstede’s six cultural dimensions.
- Describe how the two countries are different in terms of Hofstede’s six cultural dimensions.
- Given a scenario where two organizations, one located in each country, are to do business with each other, provide recommendations that would be beneficial in helping management address communications in terms of the different cultural perspectives. Your paper must be two pages (not including title and reference pages) and must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide. You must cite at least two scholarly sources in addition to the textbook.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
