Fons Trompenaars over globalisering en intercultureel management
Aan de hand van vele voorbeelden zal Trompenaars een aantal dilemma's bespreken waarmee wij regelmatig geconfronteerd worden in en door social media:
Globalisering ("rest of world"-mentaliteit) vs. de multi-local company;
• Onafhankelijkheid (iedereen vindt het wiel opnieuw uit) vs afhankelijkheid (input van experts);
• Collectieve intelligentie (group think) vs. verspreide kennis (complexiteit);
• Realtime (continue afleiding) vs. research (de molensteen van bewijs);
• Transparantie (publieke geheimen) vs. geslotenheid ("for your eyes only").
Social media zorgen ervoor dat we meer en meer worden geconfronteerd met deze dilemma's en de verschillende (culturele) interpretaties ervan. We zullen onszelf dan ook moeten gaan trainen om via 'reconciliation' deze dilemma's te tackelen.
