It is quite obvious that people with different backgrounds have different perception about it.
I like this thread and it supports the unit that I am teaching in university (International Business) in addition to Project Management.
In cross-cultural communication between high and low context people a lack of understanding may preclude reaching a solution, and a conflict can arise.
Low Context, low power distance, informal culture, monochronic and equality driven culture; Americans and Aussies; They do not care and only follow practicality.
High Context, high power distance, formal culture, polychronic and hierarchical (seniority) nature: Pakistan, India etc ; They care and follow seniority in positions.
Both ways are correct in their own cultures. However, in order to avoid ethnocentrism in a global concept, it is advised to use the more (conservative) approach to avoid any issues in communications.
Hi Igor, I don’t feel it’s even worth the effort to be blunt it’s just petty, I group this as energy wasters unless it can be shifted to some sort of solar panel to my workplace then its completely a different matter al together :-)
I have came across some people who make it a big fuss, definitely worth to point out, thank you!
Just follow a simple rule: if it can be avoided it is not an accident. Follow that rule you will perform as the stakeholder expect you perform as a project manager. No matter that, it could be interesting to debate about what "mistake" meants.
I only worry about the order of the distribution list for short lists. The order is always highest to lowest project impact.
A typical mistake I frequently see is insufficient risk management. Some PMs tend to create a risk log during project initiaiton phase, and then let it "rot". That could also be applied to other logs (e.g. issue log).
I don't consider order at all. In my career, no-one has ever challenged me on a hierarchy in terms of a meeting invite.
Maybe this is a cultural thing, but I would be concerned as to the motive of a member of staff at any level wanting to be higher up a meeting invite list than someone else....
