Communication and Team Building in Engineering Management
In the last few decades companies have expanded their communications throughout the world. It is no longer a “one business within one country” model. It has expanded to “one business spanning over multiple countries”. Interactions between international firms are now common and will be more the norm in the coming future. With this in mind, understanding cultural differences as well as how to manage meetings with individuals from different countries is needed to make international meetings more effective. This report analysis how different countries, Saudi Arabia, United States, and Ecuador, do business, then leads into issues revolving around communication, time zones, and cultural pride. Meeting management procedures are then presented to help address how international meetings can be more efficiently ran.
