Used by many multinationals to assess and train their senior executives, the IRC is a useful tool for companies with multinational staff or customers. By now, more than 35,000 people from all over the world have used the IRC to become more effective when working with clients, colleagues, and partners from cultures other than their own.

The IRC assesses individuals and teams on four vital intercultural competences:
