Using the guidebook, readers will learn:
- How to define what culture is and how to talk about it
- The ways culture manifests in their organization and how to identify their cultural strengths
- How to talk about culture with their partners and leverage the strengths of each organization
- What the typical cultural “friction points” are in partnerships and how to navigate them
