2- Identify the factors in our cross-cultural interactions and communication that can either facilitate or hinder the effectiveness of their team.

3- Consider strategies to work in multicultural teams in order to optimize team results.

According to research done by Carol Kovach of UCLA:

Cross-Cultural Teams are almost NEVER average. Diversity increases creativity and decreases 'groupthink' BUT Poor Communication often leads to failure

Dr. Carol Kovach at UCLA looked at the productivity of a series of 800 four- to six-member teams and found some important insights:

- Teams comprised of all members from a single culture tend to be of average effectiveness.

- There is a wide disparity in the effectiveness of multicultural teams: multicultural teams have the potential to be the most effective teams in organizations, but they also can be the least effective. This is the paradox of multicultural team effectiveness.
