The purpose of this study was to understand the influence of national culture on international training program development. Implementation of the selected training program was analyzed by a qualitative case study to examine how training practitioners in the United States and in Taiwan pursue standardized learning outcomes in different cultural contexts. Findings indicate that in multinational program development, leaving room in course design increases the cultural adaptability of a multinational program. Regarding teaching strategies, the teaching techniques in the selected training program provide instructors with the flexibility to integrate the context of local culture into the curriculum. By applying the course contents to their own actual lives, learners have opportunities to incorporate the context of their life experience into the learning process.
