      Based on our findings from the current study as well as results of the quantitative study (Velligan et al., ) the ILS, TABS and UPSA would need Assembly-level adaptation for use in other cultures. Another approach would be to adapt only those subtests with the fewest adaptation challenges. The classic problem in cross-cultural research, ‘Galton's problem’, was due to the comparison of cases that overlapped in ways that made the trustworthiness of the comparisons suspect (Legesse, ). For instance, it could be difficult to attribute reasons for differences between groups to cultural variables when geographic locale, history.

    Developments in Cross-cultural Research The first phase of cross-cultural research began more than one hundred years ago with the far-reaching study by Rivers () which was the first to introduce significant empirical rigour to cross-cultural research. He was among the first to acknowledge that reliable field data. approach was employed. Most change management practitioners now realize the usefulness of a needs assessment before recommending an intervention, and prescribe a solution contingent on the needs of the organization. Even a contingency-based approach utilizing a needs assessment may not be sufficient in a cross-cultural setting.

    Get this from a library! Performing qualitative cross-cultural research. [Pranee Liamputtong] -- "Cross-cultural research is rife with ethical and methodological challenges but, despite the increased demand for such research, discussions on 'culturally sensitive methodologies' are still largely.   This book is intended for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students interested in cross-cultural research. Because the applications span a variety of disciplines, the book will appeal to researchers and students in: psychology, political science, sociology, education, marketing and economics, geography, criminology, psychometrics.

Reiter et al. Integrating Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches in Cross-cultural Research Proceedings of the Sixteenth Americas Conference on Information Systems, Lima, Peru, August7.

A comparative method for analyzing efforts of induced change in cross-cultural situations is described. Case histories of efforts to introduce innovations to local communities of the developing nations were separated into 'success' and 'failure' groups.

The behavioral components that influenced such outcomes were categorized according to whether they provided positive or negative influence. The field of cross-cultural management is expanding rapidly. Traditional approaches are being critiqued and new approaches put forward.

The latter mainly adopts an interactionist perspective, pay more attention to context and different levels of analysis (local, regional, national etc.) and propose more qualitative methods as well as a more dynamic definition of by: 9.

Cross-cultural studies share methodological similarities as any other scientific research study. However, a specific methodological parameter that differentiates cross-cultural studies from other research studies is the sample; specifically, the participation of individuals from different cultural backgrounds.

Reviews "As was the case with the original volume, this updated volume fills an enormous need in the cross-cultural research provides a single go-to source of chapters on the methodological and statistical analysis challenges unique to cross-cultural research—or, for that matter, any research project in which group comparisons across levels and time are proposed.

Cross-cultural research can make contributions to theory development by identifying groups of people who seem not to behave according to established theories and by increasing the range of independent variables available for study in any one culture.

GLOBE and cross-cultural organizational culture analysis 1 Definition and interpretation in cross-cultural organizational culture research: Some pointers from the GLOBE research program. Understanding culture as it is manifested across societies is a difficult undertaking, as is reflected in the wealth of literature on the topic.

Change is hard for all of us, no matter where we sit in the world. However, when a change project spans multiple geographies and cultures, we must adapt our approach.

Too often, global organizations disregard cultural nuances and fail to understand that the perception of change, organizational or otherwise, is not consistent across the world.

A qualitative approach which was used in the present study has the advantage of getting subtle and nuance insights on a particular phenomenon which cannot be detected by a quantitative study. Chapter 3. Research Methodology. This chapter aims to describe the research methodology used in this study.

The discussion initially focuses on some of the academic aspects relevant to research and its types, whereas, subsequently, pertinent research methodology used in this study.

The equivalence or comparability of data collected in different cultures and countries is critical in cross-cultural research. Data equivalence or comparability refers to ‘data that have, as far as possible, the same meaning or interpretation, and the same level of accuracy, precision of measurement, validity and reliability in all countries and cultures’.

19 Two approaches to equivalence. Training effects on participants’ self‐rated cross‐cultural attitudes, positive affect, knowledge and behaviour.

Table 2 shows ANOVA results for self‐rated cross‐cultural attitudes, positive affect, knowledge and behaviour. In general, all aspects were already rated quite high at t 1 with training participants descriptively showing slightly higher levels than non‐participants.

Jan. 2, Vol No. 1, Art. 51 – January Intercultural and Cross-Cultural Communication Research: Some Reflections about Culture and Qualitative Methods. María Assumpta Aneas & María Paz Sandín Abstract: This article attempts to offer a response, from a general perspective, to the question of how culture reveals itself in the application of qualitative research methods in intercultural.

It is the first study of its kind in engineering education and perhaps beyond to critically examine the teaching of intercultural communication across a representative range of studies and, to our knowledge, also the first to explicitly argue for a change of approach in engineering education.

Cultural Studies Writing Prompt 1: Cultural construction is the idea that some characteristics only have meaning because they are constructed by people and interpreted in a certain way by society.

In this thought provoking book, Leonare Loeb Adler threads together 26 empirical studies that originated in diverse geographical areas. These studies present a comparison and greater understanding of the behavior of people living in a variety of different cultures.

The focus on the book is well expressed in Dr. Adler's introduction in which she states that cross-cultural research recognizes. This research thus produces, as Tsui et al. (, p. ) recommend, more local knowledge, on the cultures present, in cross-cultural management. Our study that looks at the experiences of French nationals in Quebec and Quebec nationals in France also combines a qualitative approach and a quantitative approach to explore our research question.

Quantitative methods in cross‐cultural psychology Quantitative methods in cross‐cultural psychology Keats, J. One of the aims of cross-cultural psychology is to test for statistical interactions between cultures as qualitative independent variables and behavioural responses as dependent variables.

These interactions may take the form of ordinal interactions or. Introduction: The Cross-Cultural Approach Myth: is a story or example believed as true from a religion or culture group (usually an origin story) (The Prophet Mohamad PBUH is true for all Muslims) -myth comes from the greek word “muthos” which means word: “muthos” are not literal words (they are metaphors) -“logos” are literal words The difference between Myth, Legends.Cross-cultural research most commonly involves comparison of some cultural trait (or relationships between traits) across a sample of societies.

What is most important to keep in mind is that cultures change over time, so most cross-cultural comparisons need to focus on particular time frames (and sometimes particular place foci) for each culture.Developing Cross-Cultural Measurement in Social Work Research and Evaluation, Second Edition is an applied practice-to-research text, with a focus on developing, assessing, and validating meaningful measurements across cultures and populations.
