What is cross cultural management

  1. 1. 2kamavgemsxft@id.talk.google.com<br />"What is cross cultural management?"<br />Really a good question. Let me answer this correctly. It is about culture. Basically human races came with different background. "Cultural background". The way of doing things in one culture may not be the way in other culture. what is good in one culture, may be bad in other culture. Some time the activities are all the same in two different cultures, but two different meanings, two different interpretations.<br />When person from one cultural background, meet, interact with, understand and deal with person from other cultural background. That is cross-cultural management.<br />Some people are in favor of the world is converging, all things are going to be same. They are right. some people are arguing still the world has divergence. They are also right. dont fight over this issue. we are smart people. learn how to manage both the convergence and divergence. That is the key to success.<br />I will give you examples. In USA, it is performance that counts. based on that you will be give higher assignments and promotions will be given. In Indian companies, performance is not the main criteria. It is "Organizational compatibility" that counts. That is the employee "fit" in to the organization that counts. India is a High context society. The "fit" in to the organization has to be interpreted in Indian way.<br />The business has different interpretation. IN USA , doing business means creating organizations wealth. In India doing business means "Individual wealth". On recruitment, In USA it is the process of selection, In India it is the process of rejection. And the difference goes on...<br />Certainly, the difference are innumerable. Increasing an individual's or an organization's cultural intelligence is not an easy task.

Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting a new business or reviving an existing business, in order to capitalize on new found opportunities.Generally, entrepreneurship is a tough proposition as a good number of the new businesses fail to take off. Entrepreneurial activities differ based on the type of business they are involved in. It is also true that entrepreneurial ventures create a number of new job opportunities. A large number of entrepreneurial projects look for venture capital or angel funding for their startup firms in order to finance their capital requirements. Besides, government agencies and some NGOs also finance entrepreneurial ventures.Entrepreneurship is often associated with uncertainty, particularly when it involves creating something new for which there is no existing market. Even if there is a market, it may not translate into a huge business opportunity for the entrepreneur. A major aspect in entrepreneurship is that entrepreneurs embrace opportunities irrespective of the resources they have access to.Entrepreneurship involves being resourceful and finding ways to obtain the resources required to achieve the set objectives. Capital is one such resource. Entrepreneurs need to think out-of-the-box to improve their chances of obtaining what they need to succeed. According to management experts, vast majority of entrepreneurs desire to be in control of their own life and they can’t find this beyond entrepreneurship. Studies have demonstrated that people derive great satisfaction from their entrepreneurial work.A number of entrepreneurs are of the opinion that managing their own business offers far greater security than being an employee elsewhere. They feel entrepreneurship enables them to acquire wealth quickly and cushion themselves against financial insecurity. Additionally, an entrepreneur’s future is not at peril owing to the faulty decisions of a finicky employer. So, while some people feel that being employed is less risky, entrepreneurs feel that they are better off starting a business of their own.Today, there is the increasing awareness about entrepreneurship. People aren’t confining themselves to one business. They are following one business with another. Such entrepreneurs are referred to as “serial entrepreneurs.” Sometimes these entrepreneurs become angel investors and invest their money in startup companies. As a person gains greater insight into business and entrepreneurship, his chances of succeeding in business improve.Entrepreneurs are a different set of people. They often see things that others fail to notice. They endeavor to bring about change and foster growth. They believe in themselves. Entrepreneurship propels them to strive and move forward, to get to where they want to be.<br />
