Intercultural audits and diagnoses

Inter-cultural audits

You are about to buy a company which is “foreign” to your national and business culture. You wish to find out the degree of immediate and mid/long-term compatibility with your new partner, you wish to know how long the integration and confidence and synergy creation process will take (which will determine the realisation of your financial objectives!).
SAM International carries out a written and oral audit of the Board and of some key-people -ideally from all the sides involved - to alert you to the cultural differences in strategic thought, expectations, behaviour and above all the types of communication which it will then be necessary to bridge using “intercultural bridges”

Inter-cultural diagnoses

You work with one or several partners from different cultures and wish to find out the level of synergy and confidence in this collaboration. This determines the carrying out of your project with the required level of quality and within forecasted the timeframes and costs. The SAM International diagnosis will concretely suggest ways how to improve your collaboration.
