Decision Making: Cultural Aspects

In the last byte, we looked at the concept of self-managed teams. In today's byte, we look at the cultural aspects that one needs to consider in decision making.

Decision making styles vary a lot across different cultures. Some of these aspects are listed below:
  • Uncertainty Avoidance
  • Power Distance
  • Individual/Collective Dimension
  • Time Orientation
  • Masculine/Feminine Dimension

Managers make decision day in and day out and it becomes quintessential for them to as much as possible about the decision making processes across culture. With the growth of global organizations, this has become an essential part of the business.
