Examples of Hofstede Five Dimensions

Toyota is Japanese, General Motors is American origin company. According to Hofstede we can take Toyota in the more collectivist side of organizational culture whereas General Motors is more on the individualistic side. In Toyota being a team is more important. However, in General Motors it is more important what individuals contribute to the organization.

3. Masculinity versus feminity
4. Longterm orientation.
