The story above is about product philosophies.
A culture’s product philosophy defines what a good product is, its characteristics, its character. But because there are differences between cultures, there are differences between product philosophies. If there were no differences their products would look the same, or similar.
But, they don’t. When different cultures collaborate it’s to produce a result: a product, a service, a solution. The better they understand the differences between their respective product philosophies, the better they can together produce great results.
Collaboration Workshops help cross-border organizations to align their product philosophies.
