Overview

According to authors Stroh (Loyola U. Chicago), Black (Center for Global Assignments), Mendenhall (U. of Tennessee at Chattanooga), and Gregersen (Brighman Young U.) the international assignment of managers is failing to meet the needs of either the business objectives of multinational corporations or the career objectives of managers sent on assignments. They present a guide for the systematic construction of effective international assignment systems that "achieve critical competitive results today and develop the global leaders of tomorrow." Writing primarily for interested executives, they describe the strategic role of international assignments and discuss such issues as cross-cultural adjustment, the selection and training of individuals for international assignment, and other preliminary matters. They also explore such topics as the dynamics of dual allegiance that arise in international assignments, employee appraisal methods, and factors affecting turnover rates among repatriated managers.
