The H Model – Predicting Global Cultural Affinity

When do you start talking ‘business’ with a new potential foreign partner with whom you meet for the first time?  How does the Gift Giving process work? What criteria do you follow to promote your foreign agents? Can you bring red roses for the wife of your foreign partner, when you are invited for dinner?  How do you reward and motivate your foreign representatives? How do you tell your foreign representative that you are not happy with their performance? Who should make what decisions for your foreign operations?   Every one doing business internationally, will tell you that most often foreign cultures are truly an unknown. This program provides the participant with an organized and structured method to assess a foreign culture, to determine how different it is and how such differences may influence your international business.  Five Cultural Dimensions are examined to predict global affinity. A Power Point document will be distributed to each participant with week details.

Week One (Oct. 30th) – Foreign Cultures and the Self Reference Criterion Risk

Week Two (Nov. 6th) – The Six H Cultural Micro Variables – 2 country selections by Participants 

Week Three (Nov. 13th)  - Cultural Applicability of the H model to the 2 selected countries 

Week Four (Nov. 20th) – How to use the H Country Power Index to select your foreign target markets
