ABSTRACT
This paper proposes that cultural intelligence and global business competencies are vital to organizations as they seek to achieve success in the global marketplace. Adler (2001) suggests that because of the diversity of the global workforce cultural barriers may exist resulting in misunderstanding and thus inefficient interactions. Organizations will, therefore, have to understand the cultural foundation of the environment within which they operate in order to achieve organizational success.
