In my report I will talk about cross-cultural communication in IT.
I will acquaint listeners with useful models in this field (i.e. G.Hofstede classification and others). I will show examples of difficulties one can encounter if have a customer, contractor or partner from another country. Also I will share my recommendations what can be done to establish effective communications in such cases.
