Virtual cross-cultural collaboration
Nowadays, many international teams are spread over different locations. Collaboration in these groups most often occurs via e-mail, telephone and web solutions. If the team members additionally come from different cultures, collaboration is often especially difficult.
On the one hand, we discuss in our training how the existing cultural differences can be effectively bridged. On the other hand, we also impart important strategies and know-how for successful virtual collaboration.
