Culture Wizard is a fabulous resource... I've been really impressed with it. Not sure about the statistics though. It's not free, but I would recommended to anyone doing business with different cultures.

Evan - what LMS did you implement globally? I'm interested in your experiences as an informal input to our corporate research/analysis ...
Thanks. DAVID

Hmm. Okay - so you're looking more for a policy document. I get it. In that case, I shall climb down off my 'cookie-cutter' soapbox ;o)

Hi Evan

Just saw your message and I confess to experiencing more than a little project envy. That is exactly the sort of thing I was trying to get off the ground in my last job. Alas, to no avail - I simply could not get management to buy in to the idea.

One thing I will say as vehemently as this medium will allow: a template is not the way to go. Each learning programme needs to be explored and analysed with no preconceived ideas when it comes to deciding the best way to blend the solution. If you approach the project with a template, you will wind up with cookie cutter results. Your learners deserve better.

Think of it like this. A template is a way of saying you know what the solution should look like. Making that statement before properly analysing the need is what we used to refer to in one company as 'the zone of absurdity'.

Instead, I would recommend that you look at each programme individually and come up with a blend that will be suitable for that programme. For the audience it addresses. For the technology available to the target audience. For the content it contains. For the business goals it supports.

I am happy to be available as a sounding board if you want to bounce some ideas around.
