Statistical approach to Culture
Culture is statistically relevant
Culture can be expressed in numbers
The scientific measurement of social values, i.e. Culture, started in the 1980s by the groundbreaking model of Prof.Hofstede which has been repeatedly validated since then.
Today it is applied as a lean, practical, applicable system for managing cultural differences.
We are able to give numerical expression to what drives people's behavior.
So we can talk in a common language about the differences that exist between nations, groups, teams, corporate units and organizations.
This common language helps us to design ways to bridge those differences and achieve better performance in the workplace and in business relations.
We are all different. Yet, we share the same concerns and we face the same dilemmas:
Our relationship with those who
are in power
Our affinity to belong to various
How we find ways to deal with
What we understand when we
talk about success
The way we resolve these dilemmas may carry potential for clashes.
But it is also makes us similar and enables us to work together.
