In this Jeitocast, Karen Beaman interviews Michael Novak, CEO of Tertia Corporation, U.S. representative for China's International Software Services Fair -- the Comdex of China -- and past president of Clark Consulting Group, the largest intercultural communications company in the U.S. with a focus on U.S.-Asia business communications.
The jeito Karen and Michael discuss is: Michael begins by discussing some of the cultural differences that organizations need to be aware of when doing business in China: 1- Group Decision-Making: Decision-making and information sharing are considerably more consensus based and group-oriented, which can be a source of conflict when coming in contact with more individualistic cultures, such as the U.S. 2- Saving Face: The importance of saving face in a group and not putting someone in the position where they have to make a decision in front of others is important. Michael says there are four main reasons that companies are expanding their business into China: 1- Selling into consumer market, bringing growth opportunities outside of the first tier countries.
