Course Project: Part II
This course has major project assignments due in Week 3 and Week 5. The assignments are worth significantly more points than other assignments and will take longer to complete than previous assignments. Plan time to start the research and work on the assignments earlier that the week in which they are due.
Evaluating Leadership Styles, Cultural Differences and Negotiation
In Week 1, you selected an organization for your course project (Walmart). Continue to use the company you selected to complete this part of the final project. You will need to select one host country where the company operates to compare with the home country.
Prepare a report on the following topics.

- Assess the communication styles between the two countries and develop an optimal plan to avoid miscommunication.
- Compare and contrast the negotiation styles for the home and host countries. Using Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions, develop an appropriate negotiation style for the home country to use when negotiating in the host country.
- Evaluate the leadership styles of the current CEO/leader of the organization selected and one previous CEO or other executive with a different leadership style. Propose the most appropriate leadership style for leaders of the company when working with employees in the host country.
- Assess skills that a manager of the company needs when transferring to the host country. Consider the needs of the industry too.
