Abstract

Due to increasing globalisation, the development of products is no longer restricted to one place, it is more and more characterised by distributed design teams, who work in different places, time zones or cultures. In order to support intercultural design, it is important to analyse the appropriate processes, to detect problem fields, to propose procedures to support distributed collaborative design and beyond detect the strengths of multicultural design teams. The evaluation of an intercultural design exercise showed that the major aspects of intercultural cooperation can be clustered into the topics culture, distribution, planning and media. Further design experiments will allow a more detailed analysis of intercultural design processes.

Keywords: distributed processes, cultures, collaborative design, multicultural teams
