  2. 2. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY In my last practical life experience, once I have to come across the need of a cross cultural team development. I was working as the marketing manager in a leading company of my area. We expanded our business to the capital of the country, but even after the duration of six months we were unable to get a minor share of the market for our product. After analysis rs of the problem and reverse engineering the strategies of other companies, we found a valid reason. The capital city was with a population that has people from different cultures and countries due to the different embassies and multinational organizations. Similarly there were pe people from all over the country from different provinces with a particular culture. In short the capital city was full of diverse people. So the marketing team of my company develop a strategy to build a cross cultural team. After that a marketing team was established that have Pa diverse employees from different cultures. The development of such team would help us to understand the cross cultural values, needs and attitudes of the people to develop a successful marketing strategy. When this cross cultural team came in action, they considered all the major cultures in the development of the marketing strategy. Such a strategy was developed de that was supportive to all cultural values and was not conflicting to any existing cultures. After the short time of the implementation of the strategy, our company achieved major success in the market. rapGTo GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
