Managing multicultural teams


E-learning for more effective multicultural team work

International team work, involving members of different cultural backgrounds, is very common in global organisations. That multicultural team work is common does not mean that it is also effectively managed or that leading or working in such teams comes easily.

This e-learning course on ‘Managing multicultural teams’ has been created to develop the skills and understanding needed to lead and work effectively in international teams. It is based on the practical experience of the programme developers and their learnings from working with multinational organisations. It offers insights into the potential problems of managing and working with cultural diversity and distance in international teams. And it shows how these problems can be overcome to get a team working together and achieve success.
