Fields of cultural comparative and intercultural management research explore different aspects of the intercultural management and provide general guidance for both the interaction between members of different cultures and the development of functional, structuraL and personnel concepts (Keller, 1982). However, there is no 35 integrative approach considering the cultural influence factors on the individual level as well as on company the level. Problems resulting from the design and implementation of changes in internationally operating companies cannot be solved with the help of the present research approaches.

RoC -Ratio of Generality: ln case a LCP-value is not defined for a given state in a sequence because the state was not reached by the human, the set of rules under consideration cannot simulate the following state and hence the complete sequence. The amount of assembly sequences that cannot be simulated is n e LCP· A measure of the generality of a rule can be described as the following ratio with n10101 describing all regarded sequences: 19 RaG= l-n~LcP (2) ntotal For statistical analysis MATLAB R2009a was used.

Further the generality of the rules was regarded.
