– High Long-Term Orientation ranking indicates the country
prescribes to the values of long-term commitments and
respect for tradition. This is thought to support a strong work
ethic where long-term rewards are expected as a result of
today's hard work. However, business may take longer to
develop in this society, particularly for an "outsider".
– A Low Long-Term Orientation ranking indicates the country
does not reinforce the concept of long-term, traditional
orientation. In this culture, change can occur more rapidly as
long-term traditions and commitments do not become
impediments to change.
