When I was writing my previous post, I wasn’t aware of this iPhone application: CultureGPS.
There is a free and a professional edition.
With this app you can ‘navigate’ across the 5 culture dimensions of various countries ( around 100). The professional edition allows comparisons between countries as well a personal cultural profile assessment.
I downloaded the lite edition and checked some data against the Hofstede books I own. I found out that the were identical. This surprised me negatively. But then I thought it shouldn’t. After all national cultures do not change year after year.
