Doing business in the US is challenging and exciting. The size, wealth, and diversity of the American market is hard to beat. But when it comes to business culture, too many Danes assume that the US is basically just like Denmark - only bigger. This can be the first of many expensive mistakes.--------Amerikansk forretningskultur er ikke altid nem at forstå, and mange danskere begår fejl, når de skal prøve at balancere amerikansk forretningsetikette og dansk forretningsetikette.Denne bog kan hjælpe dig til en bedre forståelse for den kulturforskel mellem USA og Danmark, der kan skabe problemer, når man skal arbejde sammen.
Doing business in Denmark is fun and profitable for many Americans, but they don't always understand the cultural differences between Denmark and the US. The high-energy, high confidence American way of selling can be a bit much for the Danes, who are by nature on a somewhat lower volume setting.Danish business culture also prioritizes effectiveness over long hours, so Americans doing business with Danes will need to accept that their Danish colleagues often leave the office at 3:30 or 4 in the afternoon, and take every day of their legally-required five weeks of annual paid vacation. "Working with Danes: Tips for Americans" offers insights on many aspects of doing business in Denmark for Americans.It includes many do's and don'ts of Danish business etiquette, like making sure to introduce yourself every member of the team instead of just focusing your attention on the top managers.And it talks about the lighter aspects of Danish workplace culture, such as the importance of bringing a cake to celebrate success - and no, you don't have to bake the cake. In fact, it's better if you don't. Written by a dual citizen of US and Denmark who has worked at both large and small firms in both countries, "Working with Danes: Tips for Americans" goes beyond simple business etiquette in Denmark to look at the deeper aspects of the two countries' approach to work and to creating value.It is the companion volume to her previous book, "Working with Americans: Tips for Danes", the basis of several seminars focusing on co-operation between the US and Denmark."Working with Danes: Tips for Americans" explains the Danish passion for trustworthiness and transparency, as well as the modesty inherent in "Jante Law" that can keep Danes from talking up themselves or their products. A light, informative read, the book will give you a good sense of the differences between American business culture and Danish business culture.

This flip book combination of Kay Xander Mellish's classic "Working with Americans: Tips for Danes" and "Working with Danes: Tips for Americans" is a fun way for both Danes and Americans to learn about each other's working culture - and take a peek at what's being said about their own way of working.Danish working culture, with its flat hierarchy, isn't always a good fit with ambitious, charismatic American bosses. Meanwhile, the American way of selling can be too emotional and aggressive for the Danes, who prefer a more fact-based, authentic approach. Americans sometimes struggle with the Danish way of doing business, which often puts the needs of employees above the needs of customers. The limited Danish work week and five weeks a year of annual paid vacation sometimes makes Americans feel that their Danish counterparts are never in the office when they need them.This guide to doing business in Denmark and doing business in the US also contains information on business etiquette, such as dining out and giving business gifts. It offers additional insights on social life in the two countries, including tips on small talk and how to make friends.The light, easy-reading tone of this book makes it an ideal guide to US business culture vs Danish business culture.
