The magnitude of the project requires you to prepare for the project kickoff meeting and business negotiations with the project team who are potential partners from the country. You understand that these cultures are vastly different. They have different business customs, social protocols, and languages, so conducting business with a new country requires a customized approach.Before answering the following questions, go to Geert Hofstede’s Six Cultural Dimensions https://www.hofstede-insights.com/product/compare-countries/ enter a country of your choice and the United States.
