Content Management Systems with regard to culture
Content Management Systems are a great tool that allows people to find relevant information regarding their questions. Most are structurally built for the English-speaking world and their cultures. They are formal and outlined properly. Many companies have won awards based on how their systems work and decrease the number of questions being asked to their employees.
When organizations start or relocate to other countries and cultural areas, they bring award-winning systems to speed up the employee’s transition to the new organization, or so it is believed. Without regard to culture, this movement fails.
