Danish Business Teams

The classical Scandinavian characteristics of consensus, loyalty to the community and equality are well-disposed to make Danes good team players.

Thus Danes are good team players – as long as the team accords to their view of how teams should behave. As long as the team is seen as a collection of individuals of similar stature and worth, things will go well. If the team is seen as being constituted of one strong, dominating force who directs everyone else, then problems could arise and Danes might openly voice their displeasure at such an approach.

Therefore, although teams can be made to work extremely effectively in Denmark, it is important that everyone feels of value and is included in the process. It is important that information is widely disseminated and that a ‘need to know’ culture of information sharing is avoided. In fact, cross-departmental information sharing tends to work much more effectively in Denmark than in most other countries.
