Business Framework: Cultural Dimensions
Project request submitted by pptlab892
According to Geert Hofstede, there is no such thing as a universal management method or management theory, valid across the whole world. Even the word 'management' has different origins and meanings in countries throughout the world. Management is not a phenomenon that can be isolated from other processes taking place in society. It interacts with what happens in the family, at school, in politics, and government. It is obviously also related to religion and to beliefs about science.The five Cultural Dimensions of Hofstede
The cultural dimensions model of Geert Hofstede is a framework that describes five sorts (dimensions) of differences / value perspectives between national cultures:
To understand management in a country, one should have both knowledge and empathy with the entire local scene. However, the scores of the unique statistical survey that Hofstede carried out should make everybody aware that people in other countries may think, feel, and act very differently from yourself, even when confronted with basic problems of society. Any person dealing with Management or Strategy is well advised to constantly remember the lessons from Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions Theory. Human beings have a deceiving tendency to think and feel and act from their own experiences, especially when they work internationally.

These presentations are next in line to be developed.
The Consulting Presentation Framework is a set of guidelines commonly used by top tier management consultancies. These guidelines specify the font styles, basic grammar rules, and usages of various sections of the slide—most notably the Headline, Title, and Bumper (see diagram below). Following this framework ensures a professional and uniform look throughout your business presentation.
This framework is used to create business presentations that focus on content (e.g. boardroom presentations, market research presentations, final deliverables). It is generally not used for presentations that have minimal content and require a companion voiceover (e.g. Venture Capital pitches).
