Unit IV PowerPoint Assignment
Research shows that the mismanagement of international projects results in tremendous losses for companies, and cultural differences are the main reason these failed projects.
You are a high level manager who works for an international company that has recently expanded into Europe and Russia. You have been asked to present a PowerPoint presentation to your employees who will be working closely with your European and Russian colleagues and who will begin traveling to this region for business. The employees to whom you are presenting have little or no experience working abroad.
Your PowerPoint presentation must include the following:
? Explanation of the structure, processes, and communication in Northwest and Central Europe
? Explanation of the structure, processes, and communication in Mediterranean Europe
? Explanation of the structure, processes, and communication in Eastern Europe and Russia
? Cultural nuances that one should know before working in Northwest and Central Europe
? Cultural nuances that one should know before working in Mediterranean Europe
? Cultural nuances that one should know before working in Eastern Europe and Russia
? Any other additional information such as customs, languages, religions, etc. that will impact how your employees conduct business abroad
The PowerPoint must contain a minimum of 15 slides. You can assume anything in developing the PowerPoint (person, place, time, name of your company, etc.). You must reference – using APA style – for any sources you use. Points will be deducted if you do not include a reference list. This can be the last slide in your PowerPoint, but make sure it includes all sources used: your textbook(s), websites, journal articles, etc.PowerPoint contains a “notes” feature where the presenter can insert notes under each slide. You can add notes to your PowerPoint presentation by clicking in the area titled “Click to add notes.” This is located under each slide. Use this feature to add additional content that is not included in your slides.
