Assignment 2: Hunter-Worth: Critical Analysis of Communication Breakdown and Cultural Disconnect (Focus Paper)
To begin this Assignment, it is important to read two related resources in which you will gain valuable insights as you write your paper.
The first resource is to complete the Personal Assessment of Communication Apprehension Exercise on page 503 – 504 in the Daft textbook. Calculate and record your score according to the instructions. Your own score is an assessment about your level of comfort in various communication situations. In the paper, you will apply what you learned from the Personal Assessment of Communication Apprehension Exercise to address the Hunter-Worth Case. As you review the case, think about the communication apprehension of the individuals in the case.
The second resource is to read the journal article – Thinking of a plant in Mexico? In this article you will discover valuable cultural insights that global managers need to understand in the context of a U.S.A.-Mexican joint-organizational business venture. Please go to the Kaplan Library to search for this journal article.
The following article can be found in the Online Kaplan Library:
