Reflections on Cultural Aspects of International Business

...five weeks of the Cultural aspects of international business course have been a truly enriching life experience for me. I must admit that I was a little skeptical about the value proposition of the course as I thought this was going to be one of those purely theoretical pro-diversity lectures with no potential for practical application. However, the fact that Professor Lane co-authored the textbook intrigued me so much (I have never had a Professor who actually wrote the textbook for the course) that I decided to give it a chance and sign-up for the course. The Cultural aspects of international business course has helped me to discover new perspectives and taught me to look at things through multiple sets of eyes which I find to be an extremely effective tool while working in different cultural environments and with people from other cultures. As I value all topics covered in this course, this paper will mainly focus on select topics and theories and their practical application at my workplace. Specifically, I will discuss how learnings about Cultural dimensions and stereotyping, the MBI model, the Organizational alignment model and Global virtual teams have re-shaped my perspective and attitude towards cultural aspects of international business and what benefits my newly acquired knowledge will bring to my team and company. Company, team and personal cultural characteristics As it was previously mentioned, this paper will discuss how the Cultural aspects of......

A piece of advice is code that is executed when a join point is reached. These are the dynamic parts of AspectJ. AspectJ's aspect are the unit of modularity for crosscutting concerns. They behave somewhat like Java classes, but may also include pointcuts, advice and inter-type declarations. AspectJ provides for many kinds of join points, but this chapter discusses only one of them: method call join points. A method call join point encompasses the actions of an object receiving a method call. It includes all the actions that comprise a method call, starting after all arguments are evaluated up to and including return (either normally or by throwing an exception). when a particular method body executes execution(void Point.setX(int)) when a method is called call(void Point.setX(int)) when an exception handler executes handler(ArrayOutOfBoundsException) when the object currently executing (i.e. this) is of type SomeType this(SomeType) when the target object is of type SomeType target(SomeType) when the executing code belongs to class MyClass within(MyClass) when the join point is in the control flow of a...

...2 aspects of the readings that I believed in were : The first was from “I know what I want to say but u can’t say it”, this particular reading really spoke to me. There were points that told us to create outlines and make notes ,two practices that I am very familiar with as I use them for my writings. The second is from ‘writing down the points’ , there is this instance where the author says “writing practice embraces your whole life and doesn’t demand any logical form”- this quote I found to be really relatable. I like writing , and I like writing for myself , there are times when I find my thoughts to be really all mixed up , in times like those I find just sitting down and putting those thoughts on paper to be really cathartic. It doesn’t matter what I write as long as I keep my conversation with my paper going. The two aspects that I didn’t believe in were : I am a pen and paper person , I really don’t like typing much , it’s the use of my hands , physical connect of the paper with my thoughts that matters , hence I think switching my writing tools , I believe it creates a kind of barrier to the flow of thoughts. Neither do I believe in skipping parts in a write up , I believe it ends up messing up the continuity in my writings. The two aspects that I found to be similar: Both articles talk about a continuous practice of writing. They talk about how this practice helps in the continuous flow of thoughts and imagination that really helps. Both articles......

The basic requirement relevant to good translation is that the translator must have a thorough knowledge of the cultures of both the source language and the target language. The translator needs not sit biting nails and rush to the dictionary every ten minutes. When it has been accepted that translation is not only important but also necessary to our Arab World, there is no point in pondering over the problems of translations. Cultural proximity is a big advantage for translators, it is rewarding for them to look for this when they choose their work. Arabization is part and parcel of the whole journey of the Arab societies to its roots. The starting-off point for any translator is their preferred future; in order to arrive at the destination then it is clearly important to know what the destination is. But it is perhaps better to......

...Running head: CULTURAL COMPETENCE: CULTURAL CARE Cultural Competence: Cultural Care Grand Canyon University: NRS 429V September 24, 2011 Cultural Competence: Cultural Care Introduction Who is the person the nurse is caring for? Where is that person from? Does this person speak English, or understand what the caregiver is saying? What is this person’s cultural background? What are the health beliefs of this person, what are their illness beliefs and practices? These questions are answered differently depending upon the person and their heritage. As healthcare providers it is important to have a broad knowledge base in regards to different cultures and people’s practices to deliver effective health care. In 2006, the population of the United States surpassed 300 million. The largest and fastest growing populations are the Hispanics followed by blacks, then Asians. With the ever-growing diverse population, it stands to rationale the importance of learning cultural aspects of health and illness. Cultural beliefs effect health decisions.
