Americans want constant updates

Question

“It seems that Americans want constant updates, and that Germans want first to get it perfect. Why?”

John

Both statements so true! And they involve several foundational topics. Let’s look at three:

Americans are pragmatic, “down and dirty.” Whereas Germans are perfectionists. Both logics work, but not necessarily in the respective other business culture. See Agreements – Deliverables.

Yes, Americans want constant updates. They maintain short lines of communication. It is critical to their leadership logic. Germans maintain long, or longer, lines of communication. See Leadership – Lines of Communication.

Ah, German perfectionism. So true, especially when it comes to engineering, which is all about how they define quality. See Product – Quality.
