Final
Project Overview and Timeline

 

Final Project Overview

 

The
final project for this course is a compilation of information gleaned
throughout the weekly readings and activities. It is designed to apply what you
have learned about minimizing cultural shock through recognition
of underlying perspectives of a different culture and about optimizing
successful communication through appropriate interaction with people in another
country.

 

Consider the following scenario:

 

The owner of a company that
conducts international communications that often result in business contracts
has hired you to create a guidebook to make sure that her employees are
adequately prepared for intercultural interactions.

 

You are to compile detailed
recommendations to prepare employees for encountering different perspectives, expectations, and behaviors in
another culture. This guidebook will focus on a selected host country so
employees will have the information necessary to communicate appropriately and
develop effective relationships in the host country.

 

The guidebook will cover
information that the employees need to know about each category to prepare for
that aspect of the cultural experience. The following are categories
for inclusion in the guidebook:

 

1.    
Universal Systems

2.    
Cultural Values

3.    
Language and Thought

4.    
Social Etiquette

5.    
Business Customs

6.    
Negotiation Strategies

7.    
Culture Shock

 

Make each category a separate section
of your 1,250- to 1,500-word final guideline.

 

Include photos, illustrations, or diagrams as appropriate. Document the source
of each media item you include.

 

Include a minimum of five outside sources, in addition to the course text.

 

Format the guidebook
consistent with APA guidelines.

 

Final Project Timeline

 

You should budget your time wisely
and work on your project throughout the course. If you work on each category as
you encounter it in the readings, you will be on the right track to
successfully complete your project.
