The ability to lead cross-cultural collaboration across geographically distributed organizations is a highly valued skill. No single company has yet mastered these skills, so the opportunities for research in this are endless.
Hofstede (1977) is a researcher known for a number of publications on the nature of cultural differences in global operations. It is suggested that you consider the body of Hofstede’s work. Research relevant articles on conflict and performance in global virtual teams.
Conflict exists in geographically distributed teams. Find what the research says about:
•The nature of conflict in geographically distributed teams.
•The causes of conflict in teams.
•The relationship between cultural diversity and team conflict.
•The means used for communication and collaboration across geographical distance.
While doing your review and analysis, please conduct your own research and use whatever articles you find relevant, including the texts and cited articles. Evaluate these articles to state whether or not you agree with the findings, and finally, describe how you would apply the results in your organization if it were working internationally with multiple cultures in a team.
