Group Project
Country – Portugal
Intercultural and international communication has taken on a new role for students as well as career professionals. Knowing when the European and Asian markets open has become mandatory; so has awareness of multiple time zones and their importance in relation to trade, shipping, and the production cycle. Managing production in China from an office in Chicago has become common. Receiving technical assistance for your computer often means connecting with a well-educated English speaker in New Delhi. Communities are no longer linked as simply “brother” and “sister” cities in symbolic partnerships. They are linked in the daily trade of goods and services.
In your line of work, you will be exposed to a variety of different cultures and language differences. These different cultures and language differences can bring about differences in how you interact with others.
For this project, you will examine and explore the following from your assigned country:
1. Primary languages spoken in your country
2. Verbal and non-verbal communication skills
3. How teams interact and work together
4. Define management styles
5. Define how conflict is managed
6. Any other relevant information
Final Product:
1. 10-15 minute presentation to the class
2. Referencing of your material is a must!
3. 3 page (double-spaced) reflection on your experience working with your group.
– What did you learn from the experience? What do you think went well? What would you have done
differently, given the opportunity? What are your goals for future group work?
