You are preparing for business negotiations with potential partners from Mexico, China, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). You understand that these cultures are vastly different. They have different business customs, social protocols, and languages. However, they also have a strong relationship with several of your vendors so they may be viable business partners for your hamburger franchise expansion project.
This is your first outreach effort with each country. Analyze the cultural similarities and differences that exist between the countries and the United States using Geert Hofstede’s 6 Dimensions as discussed in class.
Using the United States as a basis for comparison, evaluate each country’s similarities and differences. Use your text book and the CTU Library to help identify cultural characteristics that will be important during your first meeting with each country. Incorporate a bar graph that highlights how the four countries compare to the United States.
