(((((((Write a 1000 word paper answering all of the attached questions. Use Hofstede’s dimensions to justify your decisions. Use APA formatting, and CITE ALL SOURCES. You should have at least THREE peer reviewed sources. The following website is a great resource but can not be used as a peer reviewed source: https://www.hofstede-insights.com/product/compare-countries/ (Links to an external site.)
Here is an example of using Hofstede’s dimensions for the USA: “How would you form work teams?”
The United States scores 40 in Power Distance (Hofstede Insights, 2019) meaning workers don’t accept inequalities, they expect to be close to the leaders, and expect a voice in decisions. Therefore, the teams would need to be democratic in nature. The USA is also highly Individualistic, 91 on Hofstede’s dimensions (Hofstede Insights, 2019) showing that teams only function as long as every member can see the personal benefit of the team winning. I would make sure the team is evaluated on individual input and effort, not just as a team win. The USA scores a 46 on Uncertainty Avoidance (Hofstede Insights, 2019), so teams can work autonomously and, when a problem arises, they can have the freedom to problem solve without having to be micromanaged…)))))))))))))
QUESTION:Pick a country, other than your home country, that you might be interested to go work in as a manager. How might the cultural differences in Hofstedeâ€™s dimensions affect how you as a manager working in the foreign country you chose (a) use work groups, (b) develop goals/plans, (c) reward outstanding employee performance, and (d) deal with employee conflict?
Compare the dimensions of your home country with those in the country of choice. How are they similar or different?
Keep in mind that you are building a case for the country you choose, not deciding if you want to manage there or in your home country.
