How to Cope with Different and Convergent Business Cultural Values in Europe?
Savaneviciene, Asta; Stark, Gerhard
European Journal of Vocational Training, v44 n2 p49-73 2008
Rapid developments in how international enterprises cooperate raise many lot of problems, when business partners apply attitudes, aspirations, and behaviour shaped in their own cultural environment. Business partners often do not take into account management traditions and value systems of countries in which they set up business. Business development is very much dependent on cultural awareness. This requires knowledge of cultural values and their distinctions for international cooperation. The article presents a comparative analysis of business cultural values in four European countries (Greece, Spain, Lithuania and Austria). It is based on the outcomes of the Leonardo da Vinci pilot project "Training methodology of European cross-cultural business values (No. LT/03/B/F/PP-171000). (Contains 19 tables.)
