Understanding MENA culture is indispensable in today’s political and security environment. While a shared cultural undertone connects MENA societies across national borders, there are various and nuanced cultural differentiators between MENA states. Understanding and planning for cultural differences, managing expectations, working towards trust building and establishing good will are all hallmarks of successful missions and rewarding market entry strategies. At iStrategic we know that cultural norms are a mission and business enhancer rather than a normative barrier. Building crucial cultural communication skills and training in un-spoken cultural sensitivities sets our clients apart from their competition, motivates their operation, and positions our clients closer to achieving their objectives.
