Abstract: This paper presents the military rationale for developing an improved understanding of the effects of culture on the performance of military organizations and their partners. In particular the change from conventional high intensity warfare to asymmetric warfare increases the interactions between different cultures within multi-national military forces and in the local populations. A brief description of culture and cultural attributes is presented. A culture-based evaluation tool (the Soft Factors Modeling Tool), which has been developed by the authors, is described.
