Download full paperFile format: .doc, available for editing

The paper “ International Management Workshop” is a well-turned variant of the assignment on management. The Internet is a medium of communication and has implications for society. It has both benefits and harms to society. People have benefited socially through the use of the internet in terms of business, connectivity, and freedom. Internet is however sometimes great harm to the society since it impacts on social structures, morality, human relations, institutions as well as culture. Internet and culture interact through technology to promote cultural values. The policies that govern the internet are guided by cultural beliefs and values in society.

Internet benefits and harms are evaluated based on culture. 2 Therefore, the internet mostly affects culture. For example, it is believed that autonomy is an important virtue that most people all over the world admire. The  Internet uses technology to enhance autonomy among individuals, although this may not be agreed upon by everyone. Additionally, people benefit from the internet through communication, social interaction, commerce, information, and entertainment. These functional aspects affect culture and internet applications as well as services are designed to well serve these functional aspects. 2.

Discuss the types of operational conflicts that could occur in an international context because of differences in attitudes towards time and individualism. Give examples relative to specific countries. Every culture comprises of shared values, assumptions, goals as well as understandings. 3 It is important for international managers to understand the culture that exists in a particular society and its importance. Culture forms the basis for living in a particular society in terms of communication, codes of conduct, expectations as well as standards. When in their international assignments, managers can experience conflicting attitudes from individuals towards time and individualism. 4 For example; time is a great essence for anyone trading in America.

Americans value time and refer it as a limited resource. Therefore, it must be saved by having schedules and spending with care. In Arabia, time is not taken seriously and an Arabian may feel insulted when given deadlines. Individualism is also taken differently in various countries.
