ITAP Contributes to Better Collaboration Among International Space Agencies

For more than two decades, APPEL Strategic Communications has offered a course specifically designed to help NASA practitioners develop the requisite skills to facilitate global partnerships. The International Project Management course brings together space agency professionals from around the world with experts from NASA, as well as organizational development and project management specialists, including ITAP's Managing Director, Catherine Mercer Bing. 

As APPEL reports, "The five-day course utilizes case studies, presentations from experienced practitioners, and hands-on exercises to help participants explore how cultural differences can inform decision making, negotiations, and leadership styles. Participants also review strategies for identifying and avoiding some of the common pitfalls associated with international projects. A key aspect of the course is encouraging practitioners to learn from each other to better understand the challenges and opportunities of engaging with international partners. Over the course of the five days, participants begin to comprehend the cultural challenges, ethical and legal concerns, and teaming issues they may encounter when working on international projects. The goal of the course is to ensure participants leave with a heightened ability to collaborate successfully, a skill that is integral not only to NASA’s future, but to the future of the industry overall."

at the ITAP Alliance Conference
February 2017

TWIST Consulting/ITAP Europe hosted the ITAP Alliance conference in February 2017. The conference included Geert Hofstede, the founder of the field of quantitative intercultural research, his son Gert Jan Hofstede, a professor who has extended this research, and Michael Minkov, who has published a number of books on innovations in the field.  The researchers spoke with both the ITAP group and a gathering of faculty and students about the latest research in intercultural communications.

TWIST Consulting has focused on both research and practice for 26 years.  Both globalization and the growing number of international employees require increased practice-oriented knowledge of cultural differences and their effect on workplace communications.

On February 17, TWIST also brought together four of the most prestigious social scientists, whose research involves intercultural issues in the workplace, at a TWIST-hosted Intercultural Summit meeting at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich.  Geert Hofstede, his son Gert Jan and Misho Minkov shared updates about their research with a wider audience. The summit, moderated by Felix Brodbeck, co-author of the GLOBE study, offered an interesting showcase for research in intercultural areas.

ITAP members from Europe, China, Singapore, South Korea, the US and the Philippines also spent time that week strategizing about the future of the Alliance, planning for upgrading the Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire™ to include Hofstede's 6th Dimension, Indulgence vs. Restraint (IVR), and sharing best practices, good food, laughter, musical talent, and good conversations.
