Top 3 Project Management Applications for Poland

International collaborations work best when you research cultural differences before starting your project. Here are some things you should know when working with clients in Poland.

Corporate Etiquette in Poland

Punctuality is very important to your Polish business partners, and you can expect your 1st meeting to include some time up front to establish rapport before getting to the agenda items. When meeting your overseas team in person, shake hands with everyone individually, instead of a group greeting, and be sure to keep good eye contact.

Poles have a top down leadership structure, and it is likely you will meet initially with middle management, and later into the process with the decision maker, who will have more authority. Poles take their time when conducting business, so be patient with their process. They are straightforward in their communications, yet tactful, as they don’t wish to offend.
