Toolkit

Because of the dynamic nature of culture, this toolkit has taken the form of a collaborative document. Designers and users alike are welcome to contribute, discuss, and critique the content therein. Any contributions will (upon review) be included in the toolkit.

The following methods can be sorted by whatever dimensions of culture they address, as well as the length of time they require to be completed. The goal is not to validate each dimension, but to disrupt our preconceptions by being attentive to local values and approaches to problem solving.

The Dimensions of Culture:

  • Power Distance: the extent to which members of institutions and organizations expect and accept that power is distributed unequally
  • Social Dependence: the extent to which members of a society are dependent upon others and are obligated to maintain social connections
  • Gender Roles: the differences in emotional meanings and societal expectations between those born male and those born female
  • Uncertainty Avoidance: the extent to which members of a society tend to feel threatened by ambiguous and unknown situations
  • Time Orientation: the extent to which a society fosters pragmatic virtues oriented toward short-term or long-term rewards and obligations
  • Indulgence: the extent to which societies encourage or discourage the gratification of basic and natural human desires
