You are in the role of project manager for a hamburger franchise global expansion project. The magnitude of the project requires you to prepare for the project

kickoff meeting and business negotiations with the project team who are potential partners from Mexico, China, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). You

understand that these cultures are vastly different. They have different business customs, social protocols, and languages. However, they also have a strong

relationship with several of your vendors so they may be viable business partners for your expansion project.

To prepare for your project kickoff meeting and first outreach effort with each country, analyze the cultural similarities and differences that exist between the

countries and the United States using Geert Hofstede’s Six Cultural Dimensions as discussed in class. Provide a bar graph or table along with a discussion of

these comparisons (400-600 words).
