Kent Chemical: Organizing for International Growth

TASK
INDIVIDUAL ESSAY

“Based on Hofstede’s value dimension of uncertainty avoidance, the Japanese have a low tolerance for uncertainty while Americans have a high tolerance. Why then do the Japanese intentionally incorporate ambiguous clauses in their business contracts, which are unusually short, while Americans dot every ‘i’, cross every ‘t’ and painstakingly spell out every possible contingency?”
(Osland and Bird, 2006, cited by Aycan, Kanungo, Mendonca, 2014, p 16)

Based on the above example and using academic theory discuss what Osland and Bird refer to as ‘cultural paradoxes’.
