DQ1: Which do you think is a more powerful determinant of human behavior- cultural factors or individual differences? Cultural factors I believe that has more powerful and influenced of human behavior. The nature of their culture start of people how they beliefs are, perception by experience and Values they learn since their young. It has a huge effect for people work at a diverse group that may cause conflicts but can be also cause of learning and adjust themselves to the current nature.
Cultural factor makes individual different to each other. It depends on how powerful a person in the said issue. Some people has a strong cultural beliefs, but there’s some people consider to adjust based on the nature, open-mind to understand things around and that makes individual different to others. DQ6: Do you think it will ever be possible to develop a motivation framework that is applicable in all cultures? Why or why not? Motivation framework is a difficult thing to do. Some culture may be fit to others but not all.
Diverse group in companies when they use the 3rd paradigm that openness and learning to each other culture and people graded as their performance are could be a way to make an effective motivation framework. I believe a diverse group could be effective when they put one goal and objectives in their work and focus to that goal. Collaborate, cooperation and understanding to each other makes culture blend as one success group. Different people also has a different motivation depends on what is more important to them.
Like Americans, for example that motivated in money. Then, company raises salary to those employees that are motivated. DQ8: What advice would give Japanese, an Australian, and an Italian manager just transferred to the United States? Culture is a huge influence to a human’s behavior. The Managers need to understand the differences of personality, attitudes, perception from different culture and need to make an effective group. Leadership also as a managers need to have a good behaviors and good decision making especially in international business.
Managers should gather information around the company/ employees. Aware of issues and problems especially in a diverse group, identify and evaluate alternatives and select the best solution and implement culture power orientation.

Wal-mart stores start planning to build a store in town that most people welcome it but people also worrying other local merchants put out of business.

They raise a capital instead to make their own department store, Its community own store and will benefit its own people. Share in the store at $100 each will make their own investment in their own communities’ future. This community-own store is more likely in some small town like Merc in Powell, Wyo.
Its resident investment to their own community that has all the will to buy and sell or pass in families’ future generation. They design the store also that will not affect other local stores in town, for example they sell shoes in the store hat not carry from other shoe store around town. Some products that residents demands but hardly to get in town so no competition in markets. like co-op/ non-profit organization they have same goal to keep the ownership and control in the community
