Hofstede’s Cultural Framework

1. Is it possible to build a theory of leadership that is widely applicable around the world? If so,what factors would need to be part of such a theory?
2. Are there any special management skills required for companies that make heavy use of global alliances and partnerships? If so, what are these skills?
3. “Working virtually requires learning a new way of relating and interacting. Success as a manager or team member requires learning to communicate information that maybe we would not have communicated in a face-to-face interaction. Members have to communicate task related information, social-related information, and context-related information.” Discuss this comment.
