After reading chapter six from the management book, the elephant in the room for globalists is learning how to understand cultural issues because every country or nation is different. According to Bateman and Snell, “In many ways, cultural issues represent the most elusive aspect of international business. In an era when modern transportation and communication technologies have created a global village, it is easy to forget how deep and enduring the differences among nations can be. (2015).” Globalization is complicated because of ethnocentrism. For example, if the United States attempts to establish an identical democratic government in Russia many difficulties will present themselves due to cultural issues. The same concept applies to business. Using the international, multinational, and global model for a product or company might create risky outcomes or results. However, many companies export when attempting to expand globally because it provides scale economies and is consistent. The benefit of a scale economy is the manufacturing company avoids cost of manufacturing in other countries.

In connection with scripture, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. (James 1:5, King James Version).” In conclusion, when it comes to global strategy we all lack wisdom in some areas. The customs and practices within foreign countries influence revenue, taxation, laws, and policies. Asking God to guide you in expansion is the correct answer because the lord is the only person that promises to always be there.

I can recall a company meeting when management used one of my incorrect accounts. Once the session started, management stated their perception of issues and solutions to the problem. It brought back the memory of asking for the opportunity to address them and its clarity during the meeting. I, too, was ignored. Observation and perceptions are not the same things (Clawson, 2012, p. 143). Without including me or allowing the opportunity to ask questions and receive an answer from other management teams and staff.

In Brandy’s case, management jumped to a conclusion with their perceptions of the situation. This tendency to project our meaning on the highlights again the usefulness of learning more about our assumptions of others (Clawson, 2012, p. 144). My advice for Brandy is to complete all assigned projects and wait for the open floor opportunity to ask or answer a question during meetings. If opportunities present themselves, take notes and email them to management after the sessions — the chance for a one on one to address issues on the project before the next meeting. The embarrassment and disrespect from the management level is unacceptable behavior to display to staff members. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them (Exodus 2:25). If God can have respect for His children, why man does not have it for one other, the Bible tells us to treat others the way we desire to be treated. We are all humans and fail short of His glory, but God still cares.
