Global working

  1. 1. Global WorkingKevan Hall CEOwww.global-integration.com
  2. 2. What is global working? Five Barriers
  3. 3. Working across cultures• In global teams we work with colleagues from different national, functional and organisational cultures• Learn how to understand, respect and reconcile the five major areas where cultural differences have an impact on work behaviours.See more about our unique culture Abacustool at http://tinyurl.com/acr4el3
  4. 4. Working in global virtual teams • In global teams, we work with colleagues in different locations and time zones, and where most communication is through technology rather than face-to-face. • This has implications for 4C’s: cooperation, communication, control and community.Find out more about our 4Cs athttp://www.global-integration.com/virtual-teams/leadership
  5. 5. Mastering complexity• In global teams, we are often operating across functions, product groups, geography and other organizational boundaries– such as in a matrix organization structure.• We may be working with suppliers, partners and customers where there is a commercial dimension to our cooperation.• We need to get things done faster in a complex environment.
  6. 6. The shape of your global team?• The precise mixture of distance, cultures, time zones, communication technologies you use and the complexity of the organisation you work in means that your global team may face a wide range of challenges.• These usually centre around 6Cs - context, clarity, cooperation, communication, control and community.• At Global Integration, we tailor specific training programs for each global team that deal with the critical issues that are most relevant to them
