Communication, Cooperation, and Negotiation in Culturally Heterogeneous Groups.
Fiedler, Fred E.; Triandis, Harry C.
This research program has been concerned with three major subprojects: identifying concepts and behaviors which critically affect intercultural relations; developing principles and methods for programed self-instructional cultural training to help Americans adjust to, and work more effectively in, foreign cultures, or with persons from different cultures; and laboratory and field studies to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs under different leadership and organizational structures. Subprojects one and two are largely complete, while the third subproject will continue at least until 1971. (The document includes 125 references and a list of research participants.) (authors/ly)
