Multinational business agreements require specific techniques. Capitalize on whether the implementation of own strategies and methods relating to the business that have been successful in their own land, will be consistent and successful abroad. So then, might be assumed that the greater the cultural gap, the lower the commitment to turn up in strange lands.

But also on how integrated management, in case the arrival takes place directly, after a merger or acquisition. Circumscribe the cultural distance to the geographical to at least greatly simplify the problem, but can be a first variable consider that, accompanied by language, origin (Latino, Anglo, Asian), the socio-economic and other independent variables (outside the scope of the business), can help the contrast and understanding of differences.
