Week 5, Q1, Group 2: Is there a management practice: culture clash?

Hofstede discusses Motivation theory and how low UA and high MASC lead to an "Achievement" orientation characteristic of Anglo countries. Cultures that differ in these dimensions may value Security or Quality of Life more. Additionally, the idea of Individualism is another factor - as Hofstede observes (Fig 3), individualists emphasize "initiative and achievement". What are some achievement based motivational practices you've seen and how well do you think they would transfer to another country? Discuss the basis for your argument.
