At least a little bit?With markets getting more and more global having some understanding of foreign cultures, behavior and customs becomes more and more important. Having lived in abroad comes in handy, but after how many weeks, months, years does that knowledge become obsolete?
Sites like http://www.windowontheworldinc.com/countryprofile/[Update 2/26/2007: The link does not work anymore. Please let me know if you of are aware of a working one. Thank you.] and http://www.culturalsavvy.com are helpful resources to start.
Do you think they prepare you enough?
What resources do you use?
