National Culture's Impact on Economic Competitiveness
Transcript of National Culture's Impact on Economic Competitiveness
Is the argument that national culture lies at the root of economic competitiveness highly-persuasive or fundamentally flawed?
Relationship between National culture
What is culture?
Two types of Culture
*Economic competitiveness comes from organizational culture.
* Economic success comes from the success of organizations and industries in a nation.
*Strong organizational culture is a necessity for organizational success
Culture is a complex whole which includes knowledge, beliefs, arts, morals, law, customs, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by [a human] as
a member of society (E.B Tylor, 1971)
*Emic and Etic approaches were first introduced by Kenneth Pike in 1954.
*These terms were used to analyze human behaviors and cultures.

We conclude by saying we believe that national culture shapes organizational culture as a culture free theoretical framework can only be maintained if the actor is left out of the picture. Moreover formal structures can be remarkably alike across societies, however different national actors perceive, interpret or live with them in very different ways due to deep rooted cultural forces.
