Which cultures would be more likely to focus on external controls? Which cultures would you consider direct controls to be more important than indirect controls?
External controls are mainly used in the Asian cultures, while internal controls are used in countries like the United States. Direct control is when the meetings are held face to face, and they are considered more personal. This creates more trust between parties and makes things clearer. These techniques are also used mainly by Asian cultures or Latin, and they focus on maintaining their relationship with others. Indirect control also needs to maintain these relationships but it is more difficult by using technology and emails, and those are used mostly in the United States.
