COLOGNE — According to one local ad exec, Germany’s business culture emphasizes efficiency and planning up front, which minimizes the risk of failing. It’s very different from the ethos of some U.S. companies, which tend to try out several ideas to see what sticks.
However, while risky, that approach can lead to the discovery of bold new ideas.
