  Applications of Hofstede's Theory
Catherine M. Bing, CEO, United States, Member
  We use the Hofstede model in M&A integration, cultural due diligence, leadership development, web site/HR processes/collateral materials analysis (cultural audits), global talent development, talent potential analysis, global team and team leader development and of course a wide variety of training programs.
Cultural differences potentially impact all aspects of business interactions... Even customer service. See Marieke Demooj's work for implications in advertising.

  Application Areas of Hofstede
Gunnar
  If you think about it, there are lots of areas and levels where Hofstedes cultural dimensions model can be applied:
- Concretising / discussing any (vague) culture.
- Comparing current versus future (desired) cultures
- Comparing cultures of countries / regions
- Comparing cultures of companies / divisions / departments
- Managing multicultural teams
- Analysing / coaching behavior of managers or leaders.
