Hofstede? Que? Geert Hofstede?
e.g. http://www.itapintl.com/hofstedesdimensions.htm ?
Hofstede’s four dimensions (as described and interpreted in the Culture in
Questionnaire™ system, a didactic tool used in instructional programs) are:
• Individualism: The degree of individual or group orientation
• Power Distance: The level of preference for equality or inequality
• Certainty: The preference for risk vs. structure
• Achievement: The relative degrees of relationship vs. task
orientation. This dimension also
tracks the relative masculine and feminine influences in the workplace.
These dimensions, then, along with the research-based quantitative data
and the questionnaire,
are useful for Level II and III programs as a tested, analytic tool to
improved skills in conducting international business.
