Globalisation and Its Effects

Defining Globalisation

What differentiates the depth and pervasiveness of globalisation in this century compared to previous is the acceleration of cultural issues driven by rapidly changing technologies that impact international trade agreements (Vitell, Nwachukwu, Barnes, 1993). Time is literally compressed to a level never before seen before in globalisation of previous centuries, with drastic impacts on international trade and corresponding management practices. Trade is now much more transactionally-driven and more focused on measurable results in near real-time increments. The transition of commerce from being longer in sales and service cycles to being nearly real time today has major implications on cultural boundaries of communication as well (Hofstede, Jonker, Verwaart, 2012). Globalisation is forcing people together into virtual teams from widely divergent cultures, accelerating assimilation and the need to produce results as shared teams quickly (Hofstede, Jonker, Verwaart, 2012). All of these factors combined are also leading…… [Read More]

Globalisation Weakens the State Discuss

Words: 1954 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81120941

The private sector thus becomes the most important factor in the decision making process. Unfortunately, as bad as it sounds the fact that states are losing their powers in front of the private sector, globalization has proved to work, at least in the more developed countries. The weakness of a state is the price to pay for a prosper society.

It is true that globalization weakens the state, but this must not necessarily be seen as a bad thing. More important than a powerful government is a powerful economy, which gives people better lives. States that have adopted the rules of international capital market have known economic growth, at various levels. The price that must be paid is that multinational corporations have the power to dictate policies that are in their own interest and not necessarily in the interest of citizens.

However, when speaking of a state in its cultural…… [Read More]

Globalisation Is the Process by

Words: 1970 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67095451

Immigration policy, distance and financial constraints reduce the flow of people. Religions are notoriously difficult to pass from culture to the next because of the deep level of personal involvement. Languages are passed to outsiders only when pragmatic, as in the case of lingua francas. As long as the barriers to passing important cultural artifacts between cultures remain, globalisation will remain in evidence mostly with what can be transferred easily -- money, goods, and sometimes information and entertainment, but only when the receiving side is willing, which is no guarantee.

Part B. Junction Hotel is going to have to deal with an international set of guests and is likely to have an international staff as well. It will be imperative for the managers of the hotel, therefore, to be able to deal with both of these. (French, et al., p.25) note that the global manager must be culturally sensitive. This…… [Read More]
