Thus, adaptation via training could be a good approach to cope with cultural differences when or before conducting business. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that cultural elements should not be kept separated from the team managing routine. By comparing and contrasting the similarities and differences between the approaches of leading international team and a one culture ones, chapter 3 aimed to display the underlying procedures and processes that are occurring inside the dynamics of a
