In today's highly competitive global economy, it is said that most managers are - or soon will be - global managers. Whether they work abroad or in their home country, their work is influenced by global events and people from different cultural backgrounds. Success depends on knowing how to work effectively with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and requires both intercultural competence and global management skills.

This revised fifth edition presents the latest theories, research, and practices in global management. It contains a rich assortment of management applications that feature the experiences of one hundred companies, plus fifty global managers from thirty different countries. The book is organized around a new Skills Development Model designed to enhance students' acquisition of global knowledge and competencies.

This book is designed for courses in cross-cultural and international management at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
