Systematic assessments are a fast and cost-effective way to identify cross-cultural issues and opportunities for improved individual performance and organizational functioning.A structured diagnostic tool can help see various dimensions of an issue, definte root causes, and develop options to overcome weaknesses and increase effectiveness.The CMCT India Practice administers two kinds of cross-cultural assessments focused on working with India:
- Individual assessments of cross-cultural competency and preferred cultural work style. These online questionnaires help individuals become more self-aware about their cultural preferences and how they can affect working relationships with individuals in India who may have different cultural values and work-related expectations.
- Team or unit assessments to identify cross-cultural issues affecting the organizational effectiveness of a unit or team. These electronic surveys and follow-up interviews help to identify systemic communication and behavior issues affecting a group's cross-cultural work interactions with counterparts in India, and to capture preliminary best thinking about strategies to overcome these issues.
In addition to these specialized cross-cultural assessments administered by The India Practice, clients may also avail themselves of CMCT's general organizational and psychometric assessments.
