Since there were many things involving communication with the R&D Center in Korea, I believed that my Korean proficiency would matter the most. However, I came to understand while serving in this company that everything would create a virtuous cycle based on my ability for communication.
Therefore, first, I share the information that I have with all of the relevant stakeholders and collect and coordinate their opinions. If each department has a different perspective on what is important, it is impossible to run a project in a smooth manner. PMs would guide everyone towards a single direction, while leading the effective communication between departments responsible for different duties. I am reminded of the importance of communication, watching project schedules being affected by each sentence or word that is used and sometimes, projects losing their track.
As much as the culture of Korea and Vietnam is different, the way that the artists of the two countries think and communicate are different. In this case, it is important to read the context in the situation. It is more so in case there is disagreement and a need for coordination. It is important to accurately deliver the intent of each side based on proper understanding, it is also necessary to deliver the message based on the expression, tone, and manner that are adequate for cultural environment and situation of each country. That is the way for us to maintain a good relationship, while generating results that could satisfy everyone.
