Use Specific and Real Examples of Differences Between Countries to Evaluate the Usefulness and Limitations of a Model of Cultural Differences
Hofstede's model proves to be of usefulness and in relation to Trompenaars's model there are strong similarities. They both infer that Australia and Indonesia are highly dissimilar, both score opposite on the dimensions, with the exception of UA in Hofstede's model.
Its gives knowledge to organisations that they must identify the countries culture before they aim to operate in it, or they will be taken aback by the cultural differences and possibly fail in that country. An organisation must not purely base the compatibility with itself and another country if they share the same score on Hofstede's model, they must also consider external factors such as political, like government differences, laws and conflicts between countries; economical, whether it is financial beneficial to operate in that country; social, this is the population of the country, the number of market size; and last but not least the technological side, whether the country has the technology in which the organisation needs to operate.
