Organizational culture, like national culture, is an iceberg, with some elements above water and others submerged. Elements above water are not only more visible, but easier to understand. Elements below water are difficult to observe and are more important for understanding culture because they are foundations of the culture. In addition, while elements above water are amenable to change, submerged elements are either resistant or slow to change. Several differences between national and organizational culture modify the iceberg metaphor. Firstly, organizational culture is less comprehensive than national culture, as the range of values and underlying assumptions of organizations are narrower. Secondly, organizational culture is more self-contained than national culture. Finally, organizational culture is more manageable than national culture.

An opportunity: Emerging markets constitute the major growth opportunity in the economic world. For example, according to the ?International business and trade in the next decade report'[3] Coca-Cola wishes to invest 2 billion US dollars in China and also in India and Indonesia because together these countries represent 40% of the worldwide population.

[...] Part III) Renault-Nissan example: Leading for global success In this third and final part of my assignment on globalization and the global strategy', I want to describe a case of an alliance between two international companies with a huge culture difference, the Japanese culture and the French culture. In my own opinion on this example, all the elements of this case can resume the complexity of globalization and how to manage across cultures. This case was not read during the class seminar but it could be a great example of success in a globalized strategy. [...]
