Management of intercultural teams

For over twenty years, we have observed the functioning and evolution of the intercultural teams that have been mainstreamed into companies. The analysis of intercultural interactions in international working teams has highlighted the differences of representations among actors (various conceptions of decision-making, hierarchy, control, responsibility, etc.), whether they work on the same site or from a distance, as well as the way in which they go about cooperating despite the different understandings of the situation that needs to be managed. An approach to support these teams has been developed to help them cooperate effectively and has been tested in several international teams.
