The firm is a global organisation based in Australia, with employees needing to collaborate on team-based projects with global partners from various countries such as India, China, the US and Mexico. The management team is keen to adopt new policies and practices to improve the issues in their firm and to put in place long-term strategies that would promote effective collaboration among their multicultural teams from across the region. 2. In the MBA class you are enrolled in, you recently participated in a series of presentations on emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence and diversity. Choose from any two presentations based on two different organisations (other than the one presented by your own team) and summarise the key findings. 3. Then, justify why some of the strategies you learnt from those MBA presentations may be relevant to your consulting project. In your evaluation, you first need to analyse the firm’s weaknesses in managing a diverse workforce across multicultural regions. You need to provide convincing arguments as to why adopting some of the best practices and strategies from those two chosen organisations in your MBA class will help address the diversity challenges faced by this culturally diverse global organisation. Your appropriate for the intended audience who are senior executives. 4. Use a report format as follows: (with appropriate headings and subheadings) ? Title Page ? Table of Contents ?
