Choose England and Japan. Compare them to the USA. Goal: Apply your learning and understanding of intercultural communication the business setting. Learn other cultures’ best practices so you become more aware of your own culture’s best practices in business and become a more competent communicator in the organizational environment. Due: By midnight on Sunday of Week 7. Instructions: Select two (2) other cultures and review their business practices as they relate to communication. Find out what each culture’s dos and dont’s are and compare them to your own culture’s business practices. You can use scholarly articles in your online library as well as credible Internet sources. Be sure to cite your sources within the text as well as on a reference page at the end using APA style. Follow this format: Introduction: Identify the two cultures you selected and write an introduction for your report. Briefly state what you will be doing in your paper as a way of previewing the rest of your text. Use proper sentences with correct grammar and spelling. Your paper should be about 3-4 pages double-spaced. Example of an introduction: “In order to learn more about intercultural communication in the business setting, I will examine business practices of two other cultures and compare them to the North American business culture. The two cultures I chose to review are Germany and Japan.” Body: Part 1: Examine the two cultures’ business practices. Do some research to find out what the two cultures are known for. Also research your own culture to be able to compare and contrast the different cultures better. Using proper sentence structure, identify a few of the practices you found. Do not simply provide a list of behaviors, but write out and explain exactly what they are. Add details about what they do, when they do it, what artifacts or nonverbal behaviors are noticeable, etc.Try to explain why you think they behave the way they do; relate the business practices to communication concepts you have learned in this course. For example, if you are saying that Japanese business meetings don’t include much exchange of actual words, then this behavior could be attributed to Japan being a high-context culture. Part 2: After you identify and discuss the business practices, compare them to your own culture. Provide a review of how they are similar or different. Add some information about how the practice or behavior can cause confusion or miscommunication. Conclusion: Summarize what you learned. On a high level, summarize what you learned about each culture and how they compare to your own culture; write a synopsis. Write your summary in a way that a reader would be able to know what your paper was saying without actually reading the entire paper. References: Include a references page where you cite your sources using APA style. How graded: Did the paper have a clear Introduction, Body, and Conclusion? Did the paper identify two other cultures for review? For each culture, did the paper identify specific business practices? Was each identified business practice clearly explained with details? Did you attempt to relate the business practice to a communication concept to explain the behavior? Was each culture’s business practices compared and contrasted to your own culture? Were sources cited throughout the text using APA style? Was a references page included for the sources and cited in APA style? Was the paper free of grammar and spelling errors?
