Organisational Effectiveness and the role of Culture
    Online Masterclass Africa
    18-19 March 2021

    Kathrin Atta-Agyeman, lawyer and coach, about this course, that she followed last year.

    In an international environment it is a challenge to have organisations and people to work effectively. Culture has a massive impact on these international work places and it’s not possible to simply transfer management techniques from one context to another, without changing their outcomes.

    This Masterclass will help you to improve effectiveness and performance in a cross-cultural work place. A thorough understanding of the 6D model of cultural dimensions, and the skills to apply these dimensions to a great variety of situations, provides for a better performance in international teams, an adaptation of management techniques and a good balance between the standardization of HQ and the localization of the implementation.

    Designed for

    The Masterclass is designed for managers, professionals and employees working in an international workplace. Since cultural differences work both ways, the training is made for both people from the African continent as well as people from other continents dealing with Africa.

    Objectives:

    1. Gain deep insights into the role of culture within organisations, with special attention to the differences among African cultures and between Africa and other continents.
    2. Ability to apply the 6D model to your practice, to adapt strategy and (change) management techniques and to improve internal and external communication.

    Your Trainer

    The training will be given by Alette Vonk. Coming from the Netherlands, she has lived and worked in the USA and for a period of ten years in West-Africa (Cameroon, Benin and Ghana). She is an OD and intercultural management consultant and an associate partner of Hofstede Insights, with a wide variety of clients, from large multinationals to international organizations and migrant NGO’s in the Netherlands.
