Trompenaars’ Seven Dimensions on India and FranceTrompenaars seven dimensions is based on research done in various countries it defines away in which a group of people solve problems. Universalism –ParticularismThis measure refers to what is more important rules or relationships. Universalistic societies view rules, codes, and values thought higher of the needs of friendships or family.Rules are equally across the whole countries and therefore contract in business are used. Particularistic countries based deals upon friendships, and agreements are changeableParticularism is in India’s culture. As India doesn’t bound to many contracts trust is associated with friends and word of mouth. Relationships are based higher up then law so therefore adjudication is not always equal if a friend is a judge. People have identity behaviorsFrance is considered to be a particularistic. Culture is more imbedded with human friend ships, achievements, and romance. Contracts can readily be changed and is referred to more as a basis agreement. Standardized systems are less used, and prefer to leave room for change. Individualism vs CommunitarianismThe culture foster individual performance and creativity or is the focus on the larger group leading to cohesion and consensus (Trompenaars, A., & Woolliams, P. 2003). Individualism decisions are made on the spot, and goals are usually achieved by self rather than with groups. When individualism countries are surrounded by other colleagues that individual typically has very high status. Communitarianism is referred to using more of the “we” component. People in this country ideally join in groups and assume joint responsibility.Decisions in the business world are usually done quickly, and partners are typically close by for a support system.India is considered communitarianism in a moderate to high range. According to Trompenaars research; India scored a 37 in this dimension. This research also compares this dimension based on religion beliefs, and Hindus scored the lowest score on individualism with 20% (Trompenaars, A 2003). Hinduism being the most practiced religion in India with more than 80% (Census India, 2016), this strongly influences the country’s overall score. A score of 37indicates that the country is mostly communitarian focusing on the larger group rather than individual performance. The score attributed to Hindus of 20 on this dimension and the overall score of the country 37 shows the difference that may exist among Indians from different religious beliefs.
