About

You work in the Germany:USA space. You and your colleagues experience cultural differences. We explain those differences. So that you succeed. Together.

Patterns

We illustrate how we think and how we work. By providing examples. From many areas of society. Examples reveal patterns in behavior. Patterns are a window into culture, enabling you to enter into and experience the cultures you collaborate with. Patterns

Countries

We begin with the United States and Germany. The world’s largest and fourth-largest economies. Because this is the space in which we have been working for more than two decades. We intend to add countries, topics, and languages. Countries

Contrasts

We contrast cultures by addressing three questions: Where do we differ in how we think, therefore in how we work? What influence do these differences have on our collaboration? How can we get the differences to work for, not against, us? Contrasts 

Topics

We focus on foundational topics. Currently ten. Such as communication, decision making, leadeship, processes. It is in these areas where you as colleagues need to understand each other. At a deeper level. Understanding is the basis for collaboration. Topics

Questions

We enable colleagues to help each other. To submit and to respond to questions. Not a chatroom. Instead specific, concrete, practical. Where members can gain deeper insight. About how culture influences collaboration. Questions

Exercises

We provide exercises. These are real-world situations. So that you can apply to your work what you have come to understand at a deeper level. As colleagues. Together. It’s your collaboration. You decide how best to work with each other. Exercises

Languages

We present our core content – countries and contrasts – in English and in the languages of the countries. Patterns, Questions, and Exercises are in English. Translating that volume of content would force us to dramatically increase the membership fee. Languages

Research

We identify, describe, and contrast how cultures think and work. By answering the three key questions stated above. Research is our core strength. We strive to get to the truth. By doing our homework. With care, diligence, and respect. Research
