11 June 2012 The article “The Anthropology of Manners” by Edward T. Hall suggests different culture has their rules of what is considers good manners and bad manners. Also society has a habit of connecting the way a person behaves to the culture of their country; therefore that behavior becomes an identity for that individual action. However, Hall states what one culture perceives as good manners maybe consider bad manners in another culture, because some values and acceptable behaviors in different cultures are vague, unclear and not well known. Hall gives different examples how the use of space, whether it is personal or physical vary in cultures from the United States, Latin American and Middle East. For instance, in the United States
TRU is handled in a very different way than other companies making this company very easy to adapt to changes. Today’s market is constantly changing making it difficult for many companies to adapt properly to change. Firstly, the company has pursued a push system that allows store managers to adapt very well in customer relations and also monitor positive and negative feedback. This leads to a system that quickly response to any negative feedback. In my opinion by doing this TRU adapts very well to changes within their own system.
This theory was made well-liked to people by Karl Marx and Friedrich in their Communist Manifesto, 1848. So it clarifies that in Communism people will have no personal possession to the properties and the society should be equal. The people known as Anti-communists are actually defined for their position in opposition to Communism rather than their deeds and initiatives. These people say that the way of life in Communism is not accepted by anyone as a good one. Anyone alone may say that the way defined in Communism is a wrong way to lead a life and controlling life of someone living in the interior of a specific state is not correct either.
Foremost I have to express my feeling on how they are comparing the international trade of products to people. Basically, we are now trading people as well. Outsourcing does not sound so distinguished when it is put in those terms, it sounds a bit like slavery. Companies feel the need to outsource jobs in order to keep their prices competitive; however, they face more threats as well as additional cost to have work done in other countries. Primarily, in order to have a successful business they need to have plenty of happy customers.
It often seems that there are headlines concerning affairs, theft, embezzlement, misrepresentation, drugs, etc. unfortunately, these are problems seen in our country with many people. The fact that our leaders are human is a part of their failure. I often wonder, however, if the pressure of leadership makes them more susceptible to a loss of self-control, or is it because they feel as though they are beyond reproach? I believe that anyone who is in a leadership role should understand that they will be scrutinized more closely than those who are not.
In the academic literature there are two famous culture-related M&A problems - “liability of foreignness” formulated by Zaheer in his paper of 1995 and “double-layered acculturation” suggested in 1996 paper by Barkema et al. The main idea behind these papers is that companies who follow an M&A deal may meet significant obstacles in the form of differences in business practices, legal systems, languages and customs at double levels, introducing new liabilities, which ultimately may prevent a company from realizing its strategic objectives. Additionally, asymmetry of information that a company may encounter in foreign markets may make it difficult to study a new market in the correct way. Depending on the degree of required integration, there could arise other principal issues such as conflicts originated from cultural stereotypes, nationalism and even racism (Stahl and Voigt, 2005). Therefore, the rapid increase in cross-boarder M&A transactions is accompanied by growing popularity of cultural due diligence and greater interest to the “cultural distance” hypothesis.
The differences of workgroup norms and behavior between high- and low-context cultures Hema Rohira COM-623-7325-Global Communication 10/23/2012 Professor Efrem Lieber Abstract Anthropologist, Edward T. Hall, in his book “Beyond Culture “presented the terms, High Context culture and Low context Culture, denoting inherent cultural differences between societies. As per, Hall, in, “High context culture most of the information is either in the physical context or initialized in the person” while, in, “Low context culture the mass of information is vested in the explicit code”. In order to understand the above definitions, we need to dwell more on these two sets of cultures in terms of their attitude towards relationships, tasks, time, and group, and individuality, verbal nonverbal words and the essence of gestures and body language in the communication. In High context culture the choice of words is essence since few words can communicate entire message effectively in the group belonging to that culture, the context, gestures and body language play significant role in the communication. The people belonging to this culture keep relationships on high pedestal, groups are valued over individuals, the group relies on their background to explain the situation, rather than words doing it.
