But in a multicultural team all members have different views about an issue and they have wider experience and reach in solving a problem, they bring out alternate solutions and ideas for a common aspect from various perspectives because different cultures have different view towards world. Another advantage of multicultural teams is their responsiveness and adaptiveness. A diverse team is more flexible to adapt changes because it manages diversity within the team. Ability to adapt changes is crucial, and then only the organisation can succeed in adverse situations by taking quick decisions.

Hence, taking into account of the benefit cultural appropriation can bring about, here are some suggested solutions that can effectively resolve the problem of cultural “misappropriation” and yet allow for countries to continue exchanging cultural elements.
