Week #5 discussion 1

I don’t know how to handle this Writing question and need guidance.

In today’s work environment, organizations have become increasingly multicultural and HR has been faced with cultural issues. Chapter 15 of the course text provides information regarding some of those cultural issues. Prior to beginning your discussion read Chapter 15 of the course text and the Communicating Across Cultures (Links to an external site.) article.

Based on Figure 15.1 in Chapter 15, choose a culture and create a similar table for your selected culture. Carefully review the Using Tables, Graphs, Images, and Appendices (Links to an external site.) resource to assist you in creating your table. Your table must include all six dimensions. For your discussion, take on the role of an HR manager and analyze how this culture would work within a U.S. organization. What issues do you see? What would be the best method(s) to solve the issues? Based on the Communicating Across Cultures (Links to an external site.) article, evaluate how the cultural differences of your selected culture could create communication challenges or barriers within organizational settings. Explain how you would address those challenges as an OD practitioner, providing a rationale for your statements. Be sure to support your statements with scholarly sources.

Support your statements with a minimum of two scholarly articles. Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words
