Chapers 1,2,3 and 4 Discussion
Please read chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 and answer these 5 questions from the book which its link is under.
Question one is In Chapter 1:
In your opinion, why do we have to understand the culture? Give an example from your experience about a situation where you needed to understand a different culture.
Question two is In chapter 2:
As artifacts are definitely a part of a person’s, group of person’s, or a society’s culture, they must be viewed with certain perspective to see how the artifacts actually relate to the given culture. When not seen in proper context, these artifacts can misrepresent certain ideas about one’s cultural norms and values. What are some artifacts from your home, family, or society that may be misrepresented from the viewpoint of others?
Question three is In chapter 3:
Is it possible to be a consultant, such as our author was, without empirical research? Why or why not?
Question four is In chapter 4. (PAGE 56):
As the book stated in Chapter 4, elders will be more effective in teaching newly promoted supervisors than formal training sessions. Why do you think this is the case? (Be creative because the book does not provide an explicit answer).
Question five is In chapter 4. (PAGE 59):
From the perspective of the operator subculture, is “working to rule” always the best approach in getting the job done and why? When would you deviate from the rules?
NOTE: please I would like you to answer the questions, question by question, not like an essay format.
