Assume you are the VP for HR of a U.S.-based multinational company that is relying on both short-term and long-term international assignments for its operations in Brazil. There is evidence that most U.S. expatriates in Brazil experienced challenges in adjusting to the Brazilian culture. In this context, you have been tasked to develop a new cross-cultural training program for your U.S. expatriates in Brazil.

  • What are the main differences between the U.S. and Brazilian cultures?
  • What would be the main learning objectives of the new cross-cultural training program?
  • What types of training activities would you include in the program?
  • How will you measure the effectiveness of the program?
