Kuwait is a country with a rich culture and strong ties with tradition. This has led the entrepreneurs in Kuwait to regard tradition and culture in all their activities. There strong presence of culture in business negotiations has become a standard in today's world of commerce. (Stokes, 2001) The preparation for negotiations in a certain country involves a strong focus on learning more about the traditions as well as culture of the country. This helps the negotiator get comfortable with the business climate that is followed in the country so as to have a better grasp over what is happening around him or her. (Furusten, 1999) This has been seen in KCS as well. (Kuwait Computer Services - Official Website)
In the Middle East, there are a plethora of customs as well as traditions that are a part and parcel of their activities in every walk of life. For example, a major part of this involves food habits. The Kuwaitis, as a people, focus on the food at every occasion. They have a wide variety of dishes that are prepared and savoured according to the occasion. The scope for stability as well as innovation and risk in this case is in the fact that the Middle Eastern culture needs to be studied in order to come up with a fool proof structure on which the knowledge management criteria may be arrived at and finally evolved. (Hofer et al, 2002) The function of culture helps employees in gaining wider perspectives as dealing with people and cultures is not the same as dealing with theories involving market mechanisms and economies which in turn, allows room for success within the organisation. The organizations in the Middle East like the KCS are reflective of the culture there, and it is imperative to be able to gain a wider perspective on the knowledge that is available so as to find organizational success. This will help the organization focus on the actual nuances of developing a structure within which the knowledge management structure may be established. (MacLaughlin, 1999) With the help of cultural bonding, an organization can successfully motivate an employee to integrate the personal goals with the organizational ones for effective goal achievement.
