Research Paper (undergraduate), 2009

5 Pages, Grade: 1,2


Abstract or Introduction

Between 1967 and 1973 the Dutch sociologist Geert Hofstede carried out a study based on a questionnaire with the aim of showing how culture influences values in the workplace, and how to differentiate cultures in general. Therefore, he defined 5 dimensions of major importance (Hofstede 2003). Subsequently, I will outline my opinion with regard to the scores of my native country Germany. I will relate these results alternately to the scores of two other countries/regions I know, namely Colombia and Lebanon (i.e. the Arab World). I am going to illustrate some examples; however, the listing won’t be final.
