Statement about the Cultural Quantum® Five Step Method
After spending many years in Asia, conducting research, and working in various roles in corporate and academic environments Jeanne Boden (PhD in Oriental Languages and Cultures and management degree from Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management) founded ChinaConduct® Ltd. (2000) and Cultural Quantum®; both organizations advise and coach companies, universities, and individuals around the world.
Throughout her life Jeanne has studied and observed what we call ‘cultural differences’. She listens carefully to how people describe their own identity, often in terms and concepts they have learned to use, and which they have internalized via their parents, their education or from others. Based on her research occupying the multidisciplinary space of management, anthropology, and communication science and a lifetime of cross-cultural practice she developed the Cultural Quantum® Five Step Method for efficient international and cross-cultural management.
Cross-cultural management cannot be reduced to tips and tricks or comparison between ‘nations’. We want to get away from Western-centric discourse. It requires courage and commitment to develop common ground and efficient cooperation. A systematic method enabling a bottom-up approach is key to that. Our committed and passionate team behind the Cultural Quantum Academy helps you to have impact.
