Success in international business: Largely dependent on the "Human Factor"
Good business skills and knowledge, as well as English ability are prerequisites for international business persons. However, these in themselves are not sufficient for success in business.
The ability to understand different cultural values and to be able to respect and adopt them, as well as cross cultural communication and management, are other essential factors.
The former can be regarded as a sort of "hardware", and the latter as the "software" which is required to enable full and effective utilization of the "hardware".
This software cannot be "installed" by oneself because of its nature. It can be effectively obtained with the assistance of trainers having the soft ware, through well organized training involving discussions, group activities, role plays, coaching and case studies
The associates have wide experience in international business involving cross cultural issues, and thus have acquired the necessary "software".
The training program offered by experienced trainers is practical and experimental training based on the the analytical tool "MoF".

USP-1. The Analytical Tool " MoF"

The analytical tool for cross cultural issues, Model of Freedom -MoF (please refer to the column below for MoF) is used in the program. It is also an effective tool for understanding the business cultures of different countries, as well as understanding one's cultural profile and orientation.
USP-2. Practical Web Tools based on MoF for Individuals and Organizations

Profile ComparisonParticipants in the program are offered the use of the web tool called The Personal Culture Profiler, PCP, which is based on MoF. It enables the drawing of each individual's cultural profile and orientation by answering a questionnaire online. This drawing can be compared with the business culture of a specific country so that the individual's issues can be made clear.

Additionally, the web tool The Applied Culture Intelligence, ACI, is available for further analysis. ACI assesses awareness of the influence of culture in an international business environment.

What is MoF?
What can MoF do? -
Part 1:

Manageing MindsetsMoF, Model of Freedom, was developed by Mijnd Huijser a founder of CMC Group - Culture & Management Consulting.
It enables visualizing the cultural differences among countries by depicting a cultural orientation in a four dimension circle.
It is a powerful tool that helps overcome obstacles inherent in cross cultural situations. (Photo:His recent book on MoF "Managing Mindsets")

What can MoF do? -
Part 2:

" Too many meetings with too many participant, yet no decision", "Too much time taken making decisions", " Tasks outside one's area of responsibility are requested", " Japanese is spoken among Japanese managers during meetings", " Insufficient explanation of basic company policy" and so on. These are typical complaints P.A.R.K. received from foreign managers who work for or with Japanese companies.

In contrast, Japanese managers often make complaints about local staffs such as: "Information not being shared with others", "Decision made without prior discussion", "Lengthy explanation on obvious matters", "Never admit mistakes", " Too much noise in meetings" and so on.

One of the most important factors for an effective organization is said to be the sharing of a common vision among all staff. In an organization where such complaints are heard, it is hard to imagine how any vision could be shared. Some measures have to be taken to tackle the issue.

MoF is a powerful and practical tool to analyze and provide solutions for cross cultural issues. It can, for example, visually and clearly describe countries' different business styles that cause business conflicts. It allows the analysis of the background to differences, thus leading to suggestions as to how one can best cope with conflicts. In addition, the online questionnaire system provides individual cultural profiles that can be compare with a specific country's business culture.

In order to help understand an individual's cross cultural issues, additional online tools are available through which an individual's personal cultural profile can be drawn.
