Agnieszka Niezgoda , Dawid Szutowski , Julia Szutowska


Cultural differences are of crucial importance for conducting the international business. The general regularities seem not to account for the particularities of single countries. Thus, the purpose of the present research was to study business culture in Poland and Turkey due to their strengthening position as regional leaders. The research relied on the semi-structured interviews performed in tourism companies amongst Polish and Turkish business practitioners in 2016. The data was analyzed using the thematic analysis approach. Polish entrepreneurs were found to prove more pro-transactional approach while Turkish respondents emphasized pro-partnership one. In Poland the opinion on the business partner was formulated based on his/hers competences while in Turkey the role of good manners, politeness and the knowledge of culture, art and geopolitical situation was dominant. Polish respondents claimed high punctuality while one third of Turkish stated that it is possible for their business partners to wait for them even if they have no excuse for being late. The qualitative research presented in the paper requires to be followed by the extensive quantitative one. The paper attempts to fill the gap concerning the cultural differences in conducting business in Poland and Turkey
