Create a table that compares two societal cultures on the nine dimensions of culture identified by the GLOBE project.

GLOBE Table
Instructions  
Create a table that compares two societal cultures on the nine dimensions of culture identified by the GLOBE project. Your primary source should be the GLOBE project. Secondarily you can use Hofstede. Depending on the countries you choose, you may need to do more research. Your table should have three columns, one with the nine dimensions, one with the first country, and one with the second country.

Following is an example of comparing one dimension between Germany and China:

Dimension Germany China
Assertiveness
  • GLOBE scores: West 4.55 & East 4.73
  • Highest 25% GLOBE study
  • Work relationships are to the point and strict
  • GLOBE score: 3.76
  • Moderate range score
  • Indirect approach to communication

Background and Summary of GLOBE

The Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania was the home of the GLOBE Research Project, which investigated variations in business leadership worldwide.  GLOBE comprised 170 researchers in 62 societies over 11 years.  The research team’s stated objective was…

To determine the extent to which the practices and values of business leadership are universal (i.e., are similar globally), and the extent to which they are specific to just a few societies.

The team is attained this objective.  GLOBE’s findings present to us all a breakthrough in our ability to think about business leadership in a way that is accurate, action-oriented, and – most importantly – genuinely global.

Any organization that devotes resources to developing global leaders now has within its grasp the data and the guideposts to accomplish this critical goal.  It’s now possible with unprecedented confidence to assess, develop, and measure top leadership talent in a way that captures the full meaning of “global.”

The first report from the GLOBE team was an 818-page book by R.J. House et al., Culture, Leadership, and Organizations,  published by Sage in 2004; this précis addresses the 2004 publication only.  A second report of the GLOBE team was published in 2007 (note).  A third report is in press.  The other three articles at Grovewell.com/GLOBE (total 8,500 words) provide all those responsible for leadership development with an overview and interpretation of the findings reported in 2004.

The first question addressed by the team was which measurement standards (“independent variables”) to use to be precise about the similarities and differences among various societal and organizational cultures. Their efforts yielded nine “cultural dimensions” that serve as their standard of measurement.

Performance Orientation Uncertainty Avoidance Humane Orientation
Institutional Collectivism In-Group Collectivism Assertiveness
Gender Egalitarianism Future Orientation Power Distance

Sources No Sources Paper uses no additional sources besides the GLOBE project. Paper uses one relevant source, not including the GLOBE project. Paper uses two relevant sources, not including the GLOBE project. Paper uses at least three different relevant sources, not including the GLOBE project.
Analysis, Organization and Mechanics Does not attend the requirements of the assignment. The paper is basically describing the different cultures, but not comparing and contrasting.  The paper alternates between using some comparison and contrast, but some is just description, of the different cultures. The paper uses mostly comparison and contrast, not just description, of the different cultures. The paper compares and contrasts the two different cultures clearly and is more in depth than a simple description.
Application Not present There is some attempt at applying what the cultural dimensions mean but at a superficial level – much like the GLOBE table. There is additional information that begins to describe how the cultural dimensions impact behavior in these societies. There is additional information that applies the knowledge of the cultural dimensions to behavior in the society, specifically in organizations and business. There is clear application and elaboration on how these cultural dimensions impact behavior in these societies, especially in organizations and business.
Mechanics and Style APA not used at all There is an attempt to format and style the paper according to APA but several mistakes are made. Some of the paper is formatted and styled correctly, some mistakes persist. Mostly the paper is formatted and styled according to APA guidelines.
