Module Four Short Paper Guidelines and Rubric.html

Overview

With the rise of technological advances in communication, it is now easier than ever to interact with someone on the other side of the world in a matter of seconds. For organizations looking to expand worldwide, these advances can be a tremendous asset. However, they can also create cultural misunderstandings and barriers between organizations attempting to communicate with other organizations, clients, customers, or the general public. If these cultural barriers are not handled swiftly and appropriately, tensions can escalate and cause significant issues beyond the professional world that affect innocent lives.
