MGT672 Module 05: Cultural Dimensions in Decision-Making

Danone’s Wrangle with Wahaha

This week’s discussion will focus on cultural decision-making using the case study about Danone in China (p. 255 in the attached textbook).

This case focuses on the cultural differences and management styles of the French company Danone Group in its joint venture with its Chinese company partner, Wahaha Group. In this situation, Wahaha established other companies outside the joint venture that Danone Group claimed infringed on Danone’s interests. These infringements were alleged to be in violation of a non-compete clause and unauthorized use of the “Wahaha”’ trademark owned by the joint venture. Danone sued Wahaha and the lawsuit eventually resulted in Danone Group accepting a cash settlement from Wahaha Group to the “Wahaha” trademark.

After reflecting on this situation involving cultural differences, as a leader, how might an international company enter into a joint venture in Saudi Arabia with a domestic company and demonstrate the commitment to working together well, respecting the Saudi Arabian culture and management style to resolve such a conflict?
