MGMT 601: Assignment #3 – Business Report: Cross-Cultural Differences in Leadership

Assume that your boss has asked you to prepare a formal Business Report on Cross-Cultural Differences in Leadership which will be shared at the next executive meeting.

In this report they want to see well-documented information on the ways cross-cultural differences affect leadership in the 21st century.

Your report should contain two main parts:

  • general part, which evaluates current trends in cross-cultural communication and describes most relevant frameworks dealing with cross-cultural differences;
  • specific part, which evaluates how cross-cultural differences influence the performance of the chosen company with specific examples; this part should be written in a problem-solution format and end up with set of recommendations relevant for the company.

In order to get A and B level grades, you must demonstrate knowledge of frameworks and studies beyond the content of the textbook and in-class explanations in your report and provide a relevant set of recommendations, precisely targeting specific problems you identified in the chosen company. Avoid general recommendations which could be applied to almost any company.


  • Report must contain at least 3000 words
  • Report must include 6-8 citations and references in addition to the textbook

All sources must have: authors, publication dates, and publishers

  • Report must include: executive summary, introduction, main body, conclusion, and list of recommendations
  • Report must exhibit good writing, research, and analytical skills, appropriate for an MBA-level paper
  • Report must be written in the formal style

Avoid using personal pronouns and sharing personal experience for this assignment

Avoid/limit usage of charts, diagrams and other visual components, instead concentrate on making your ideas coherent, relevant and convincing
