Intercultural skills are critical to the success of any global corporation.
The Simmons Global Cultural Assessment Tool is a simple but powerful web-based
instrument that enables workshop participants to learn about culture,
identify their cultural profile, identify gaps between themselves and
others and learn techniques to address resulting challenges and opportunities.
The instrument is based on the Intercultural Awareness Model (ICAM©)
created by Paula Caliguiri, Ph.D., Director, of Rutgers University Center
for Human Resource Strategy.
