Preview

This book focuses on organizations that function across dissimilar nations and cultures. These organizations are everywhere, regulating economic rhythms of nations and people on a worldwide scale and at an unprecedented rate. Naturally, scholars and practitioners interested in the study of organizations in dissimilar national contexts need to know more about these social systems, how they evolve, what forces affect them positively, and what affects them negatively. This chapter focuses on the issue of developing effective global organizations. Several guidelines are presented with special emphasis on those that deal with converting a global presence into a major competitive advantage on a sustained scale. The notion that globalization in the 21st century is largely a complex phenomenon characterized by high levels of ambiguities and volatility is emphasized. The strategies that global organizations can adopt in this environment are presented.
