Abstract or Summary
  • A cross-cultural analysis of business practices based on video recordings of interviews with business professionals in both Oregon and Taiwan, with the intent of finding evidence to support or question current beliefs about cultural differences between American and Asian cultures. Particular focus is paid to business practices such as networking, hiring practices, and innovation. Video recordings from a joint UHC/COB international business research project from the Spring/Summer of 2010 are analyzed to show how cultural differences relate to differences in actual business practices. A sample job application form from Taiwan is analyzed as a way to identify differences in hiring practices, particularly focusing on the job application from Taiwan asking for a list of family members and their occupations. This relates directly to the Chinese concept of guanxi—a particular form of personal networking and social capital common in China and Taiwan. Further research that successfully integrates social sciences with business practices is needed.
