A testimony of the importance of cross cultural training:

If I had received cultural training in my 20 years of global career, I would have been more aware of myself, the other culture and be more efficient in turning national differences into equality. People are even today left to figure it out by themselves, making mistakes, creating misunderstandings and mistrust. Problems then need to be fixed, which costs time and might affect the bottom line of any company in a certain country, or not getting that deal.

Research has shown that a lot of mergers fail because of cultural differences (corporate or national).  I have lived the consequences of that while managing some joint ventures in Eastern Europe, sometimes a truly disheartening experience for all involved. Cultural awareness needs to be on the agenda of any company doing business outside its home market!
