helpful to consider: What kinds of framework are helpful for considering cultural differences and what can they tell you about different expectations people in these countries have of leaders and
managers? What are the differences in legal frameworks for the regulation of business and employment? What implications will these have for how you will manage? What are the likely sources of
misunderstanding? What are the ways that theory has been useful in thinking about the problem posed, including provoking you to think in different ways? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the
