Business theorists have determined that western managers try to solve problems before defining them, a management style much different from eastern cultures. Western managers are said to "ready, fire, then aim", which seems to me like they are guessing and hoping that they are choosing the right solution to the problem. I see eastern managers taking more time to make decisions, which works for them, but isn't really the American way. Managers in western culture need to get things done so they can move on to the next thing, and they like to do it as fast as possible. This could cause problems within a business, especially if they make a major mistake. If a western manager is working with an eastern manager, it could cause some conflict, due to their conflicting styles of management. However, it may help both of them. The western manager could learn to be more patient and think ideas through better before coming to a decision, and the eastern manager could learn to make quicker decisions and make more decisions off of instinct. I think if i can try to be somewhere in the middle of the two cultures business-wise, I could be successful by making careful, but quick decisions that will help my company succeed.
