Communication and Team Building in Engineering Management
The fast pace progress in the areas of information and communication technology (ICT), has made it way easier for people at multiple locations to share information and collaborate. Consequently, organizations are utilizing this opportunity to hire geographically diverse workforce and groups across multiple locations spanning different cultures and society. The driver for this phenomenon has been to take advantage of emerging markets, intellectual capital and cheaper workforce and in developing countries. This project looks at the impact of cultural dimensions on effective communication between team members of such global organizations. The team referred to several resources to outline some of the cultural issues that impact communication. A survey was conducted by the team by contacting several employees of organizations with global workforce. The responses were analyzed and its details have been shared in this project.
