Developing Intercultural Competence

On the basis of Erin Meyers book (2018) “The Culture Map" we will explore and decode how people think, lead, and get things done across cultures. Using the eight-scale model to illustrate behaviour-based, cultural differences. The eight scales will illustrate how cultures differ on a spectrum between different extremes. The model is intended to help understand challenges in international business collaboration and thereby enable strategies for effective collaboration. The primary goal of this unit is to identify the cultural differences of various countries and to derive possible recommendations for living and working in Carinthia and/or abroad.
