Globalization processes have resulted in the emergence of business and management networks in which the sharing of knowledge is of crucial importance. Combining two contemporary and important subject areas – namely that of international management and also language and communication in multi-language contexts – the author of this book presents a wealth of ideas, examples and applications taken from international and global contexts, which show that ‘language matters’ in the pursuit of international business affairs. The book establishes the theoretical core of its main ideas by introducing two orientations (social construction and linguistic relativity) and demonstrates how they can be drawn on to frame and understand the activities of managers. Highly innovative and topical, Susanne Tietze’s book will appeal to students of international management and international human resource management as well as those studying intercultural communication. It is also useful for managers and practitioners who work internationally.

Unlike other international management texts that tend to be U.S.-centric, Ahlstrom and Bruton's INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT presents core theories and models from a global perspective. Students are presented with the fundamental theories of international management so they will be prepared to make decisions in any business situation. These theoretical issues are supplemented and reinforced with an array of real-world, concrete models of the many educational, sociological, legal-political, and cultural constraints they will undoubtedly face during a career in international business. Because of its global nature, INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT is a good choice for business students around the world.

Winner of the Management and Leadership Textbook category at the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards 2013/14, International Management explores management opportunities in encounters across the world between national, organizational, political, professional and social cultures. It is soundly based theoretically and supported with real-life international examples from contemporary events and situations, exploring contemporary and historical material to provide insights for today's managers who find themselves dealing with diversity and difference. From a historical perspective and a uniquely cross-disciplinary approach, Elizabeth Christopher identifies the major leadership styles that continue to characterise people across regions, nations, communities and organisations, within groups and as individuals. International Management is a practical and comprehensive textbook for successful negotiation in a world rich not only in cultural diversity but also in convergence. It also covers the ethical, moral and environmental ramifications of business today and the corporate leaders who are learning to manage their businesses across nations and continents, not only profitably but in ways that contribute to societies overall through economic, environmental and social action. International Management is an indispensable guide for students and practitioners to key issues of cross-cultural management, suitable to accompany online or private studies, or a teaching unit within professional and university graduate studies of international management.

A nation's economic success depends on the capacity of its companies and trading organizations to develop business relationships, trade and do business in the international arena. Doing business across borders subtly changes the processes and skills the successful manager needs. Cultural, social, geographic and legal factors serve to complicate the picture. The mantra for managers today is think global, act local. In this handbook the authors concentrate on the big developments that currently are happening at an international level. They consider how managers operating in the global business landscape must change what they do to create advantages and remain competitive. The Global Business Handbook is based on the structure of the very successful IÉSEG International School of Management's programme on international management. It includes a global focus, backed by the latest research on different aspects of international business carried out in different parts of the world.

The development of international business and of globalization in every field of activity requires the interaction of individuals and groups with diverse cultural, religious, ethnic and social characteristics in different institutional contexts. Cross-cultural Challenges in International Management addresses the various difficulties that may impede smooth communication and cooperation of those involved in such interactions. It examines what types of resources are mobilized to overcome such difficulties. The cultural and societal challenges of international management must be considered at different levels, the one of strategy, which the first part of the book is devoted to, but also that of management and business practices, addressed in the third part of the book. Both strategic decisions and daily business practices, however, in the particularly fluctuating and incompletely defined international context, gain from being framed by ethical and corporate social responsibility, which the second part of this book is devoted to. Cross-cultural Challenges in International Management provides an analysis of specific situations revealing such cultural or societal challenges. Thus, the reader will benefit not only from advanced theoretical knowledge in the field, but also from practical applications in various professional context and various countries. Practitioners, students in various fields of social sciences, particularly in management, communication, international relations, and researchers will widely benefit from this book.

International Management and Intercultural Communication consists of cases of direct observation and personal involvement in a wide variety of communication challenges in international management settings, and discusses them in terms of management theories. The cases explore interactions across national cultures and regional boundaries, demonstrating both traditional and unusual approaches to problems that sooner or later are likely to challenge all managers who operate internationally. The book is presented in two volumes. Volume 1 contains case studies concerning different aspects of international management and intercultural communication in business, marketing and politics. Volume 2 deals with cases of international management in social and educational settings.

Emerging Themes in International Management of Human Resources is the third volume in the Research in Organizational Analysis series. This volume investigates important human resource management (HRM) issues within an international context. The papers in this volume provide insight into several HRM areas. First, the international context’s effects on management knowledge transfer; privatization of traditionally governmental services; and the relation between social capital and organizational diversity is considered. The second part of this volume is concerned with the issue of staffing in international organizations with special emphasis on HRM selection and termination practices for the crossnational company. Third, women’s issues in the international firm are explored. Gender issues such as flexible work arrangements and the role of culturally defined gender egalitarian values on role differences among women and men managers are investigated. Finally, the volume explores the issues of expatriation and repatriation among firms. The role of psychological contracts in supporting successful expatriate experiences; how repatriate support practices influence repatriate organizational commitment; turnover intentions; and career success; and an investigation of repatriation as sense making process are discussed. This volume provides a good basis for understanding how HRM practices are affected by crosscultural differences and provides insight into best HRM practices for the international organization.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2.0, University of Tubingen (Department of International Business), language: English, abstract: This paper’s purpose is to give an overview of how distance in management research is measured and to overview the strong critique the corresponding measures have to face. The paper’s investigation brought several findings: firstly that frameworks in which distance constructs develop are too wide in their definition and that these frameworks are insufficiently connected to each other what impedes the improvement of the strong criticised but in management research essential constructs. Secondly the paper illustrates the widespread disagreement among researchers and literature. The paper gives suggestions how distance measures could be improved and contributes to a more "outside of the box thinking" by considering the whole distance construct. Furthermore it helps to build unbiased opinions of the thematic by not taking a side or giving suggestions whether on construct is superior towards another. Due to rising internationalization of businesses and the circumstance of having business partners, suppliers and clients placed all around the world, companies are fronting challenges like diversities in lifestyles, languages, cultural values and norms, consumer preferences and buying power. So it is not surprising that these differences or distances became an increasingly important topic in international management research. Distance aspects are important for companies in evaluating and improving their international strategies in nearly every field of business, especially when it comes to expansions in foreign investments through direct investments, international transactions and joint ventures. In purpose to be able to identify the extent of difference between countries, that Hymer called "liability of foreignness", management scholars evolved a broad range of quantitative and qualitative distance measures based on different assumptions and methods. But although the concepts play an important role in international management research and although they are widely used in international business practice to support or to improve companies’ decision-making process, they face strong criticism and contradiction.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Pforzheim University, course: International Management, 29 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Modern companies are trying to gain an advantage over their competitors. Most of them are finding that a good way to gain such an advantage is through the complex process of going global. By doing so, enterprises can extend their product lines to other countries and cultures. They can also save money on labour costs by taking advantage of the lower standard of living in some countries. Global expansion enables a company to add value by transferring core skills overseas, using global volume to cover product development costs, realizing economies of scale from global volume, and configuring value-creation functions in locations where value added is maximized. Companies pursuing global strategies can gain cost economies by integrating manufacturing, marketing, and competitive strategies across national boundaries, but they must give up a certain degree of responsiveness to national conditions. This study looks at the strategies companies adopt when they expand outside their domestic marketplace and start to compete on a global basis. The first chapter starts with a discussion how global expansion creates important values for companies. The second chapter examines different strategies which companies can pursue in the global arena. These four different strategies are reviewed in detail - the international strategy, the multidomestic strategy, the global strategy, and last but not least the transnational strategy. Furthermore the pros and cons of each of these strategies are debated. In addition the link between the appropriateness of different strategies and the pressures of cost reductions and local responsiveness is made. In the next section the various basic options a company has for entering a foreign market - exporting, licensin
