Read an Excerpt

The hypercompetitive global arena of the twenty-first century mandates that managers develop the skills necessary to design and implement global strategies, to conduct effective cross-national interactions, and to manage daily operations in foreign subsidiaries. Companies operating abroad often report that their global strategy is undermined by expatriate failure—the ineffective management of intercultural relations. This means that the fate of overseas operations depends at least in part on the international manager's cultural skills and sensitivity, as well as the ability to carry out the company's strategy within the host country's business practices.

Clearly, the skills needed for effective management of people and processes in a global context are crucial for the twenty-first century. There is thus a pronounced need for a comprehensive textbook that addresses the actual management functions and behaviors necessary to develop global vision and management skills at both an organizational or strategic (macro) level and an interpersonal (micro) level. Global Management: Strategic and Interpersonal, fills this need.

This text places the executive or student in the role of a manager of any nationality, encouraging the student to take a truly global perspective in dealing with dynamic management issues in both foreign and diverse host environments. Competitive strategy is evaluated in the context of global changes—the European Union, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the liberalization of Eastern Europe, and the evolving marketplace of the Commonwealth of Independent States—that require new management applications.Throughout, the text emphasizes how the variable of culture interacts with other national and international factors to affect managerial processes and behaviors. In addition, the growing competitive influence of technology is emphasized, with boxes featuring the use of e-business for global competitive strategic positioning.

This book is designed as a concise, practitioner-oriented alternative to the typical 600-plus page textbook. It is especially useful for executive training and graduate courses, and for undergraduate courses in global management, international management or business, and cross-cultural management where the professor wishes to use his or her own pedagogical supplements. The emphasis is on practical currency, research grounding, and the integration of technology, business ethics, and global managerial skills. DISTINCTIVE TEXT FEATURES

  • Comparative Management in Focus narratives provide in-depth comparative application of chapter topics in specific countries. Some examples are "Strategic Planning for the EU market," "Motivation in Mexico," "Communicating with Arabs," "Negotiating with the Chinese."
  • E-Biz Boxes offer examples of the application of IT, specifically B2B, around the world. These include "Siemens AG Launches Global E-Company, " "Covisint, LLC, " and "FedEx E-Commerce Solutions in Asia.
  • Comprehensive Cases place the manager in a decision-making role to wrestle with situations regarding strategy, culture, HRM, social responsibility, politics, and technology in the global arena.
