Global organizational culture

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board  area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with  your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for  future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use  examples to reinforce your ideas.

The Chairwoman of Board of Directors has selected you to lead the  effort to create an international internship program for your  organization. You will be leading a cross-cultural virtual team,  including the vice president (VP) of human resources and department  heads from all areas of the organization from its locations throughout  the United States. The team is responsible for developing a 3-month  summer program for 50 international interns. The international interns  will be selected from university programs in their home country, will  travel to the organization’s U.S. locations, will live and work in the  United States, and then may have the potential to be offered a permanent  position with the organization.

Using the Bloomberg Businessweek B-school connection program,  research global organizational culture and respond to the following  questions:

  • What best practices do you recommend for leading a virtual  cross-cultural team? What is the difference between leading a U.S.-based  virtual cross-cultural team and a global virtual cross-cultural team?
  • What are the legal or regulatory factors that the team needs to consider for the interns to be employed in the United States?
  • How will the organization onboard the interns and introduce  them to U.S. culture? What types of activities can be hosted for the  interns to celebrate their diversity?
  • What are the benefits of the international internship program to the interns and to the organization?

Provide a reference list at the end of your primary task response of  at least 5 articles from Bloomberg Businessweek B-school connection  program, and include in-text citations for the articles in APA format.

Plagiarism will not be condoned in this assignment.
