Is Belbin cross-cultural?

A question - is this model valid cross-culturally? Was the research done only with English subjects? Has there been any research done with other cultural groups?

Belbin

Susan, there is little in the book about this, although ironically the research was repeated at a college in Melbourne and similar results reported. I don't know of any other cultural evidence, although I have used it extensively in Scandinavia and it holds up well.

Belbin and cross-cultural use

Although I like the tool, I have recently received the same question from a client who has a large first nations (aboriginal) component to the workforce. Are there documented uses of the Belbin within this group?

Belbin in cross cultural environments

Susan - I am a Project Manager working in International Development for the World Bank, AusAID and DfIDand similar - and I have used Belbin extensively to build teams in truly cross cultural environments where the team may comprise personnel from 5 or more countries / cultural backgrounds. I have most recently used Belbin in Afghanistan and the Sudan.
