Business Report: Cross-Cultural Differences in Leadership
Assume that your boss has asked you to prepare a formal Business Report on Cross-Cultural Differences in Leadership which will be shared at the next executive meeting.
In this report they want to see well-documented information on the ways cross-cultural differences affect leadership in the 21st century.
Your report should contain two main parts:
1) general part, which evaluates current trends in cross-cultural communication and describes most relevant frameworks dealing with cross-cultural differences;
2) specific part, which evaluates how cross-cultural differences influence the performance of the chosen company with specific examples; this part should be written in a problem-solution format and end up with set of recommendations relevant for the company.
In order to get A and B level grades, you must demonstrate knowledge of frameworks and studies beyond the content of the textbook and in-class explanations in your report and provide a relevant set of recommendations, precisely targeting specific problems you identified in the chosen company. Avoid general recommendations which could be applied to almost any company.
