The Global Manager

Sumati Reddy (Author) G.P. Sudhakar (Author)
Synopsis Current day organizations are becoming more global in nature. Many organizations require their managers to spend considerable amount of time managing overseas business. These assignments can range from short business trips to lengthy business assignments. Working in a foreign culture poses its own challenges, which these global managers have to face in addition to their business responsibilities. Some of these challenges include managing in a multicultural environment, which involves managing people from diverse backgrounds. Other challenges include linguistic challenges, culture shock, corruption, enabling the family to adjust in the new environment, etc. Managers being sent on assignments overseas need special training and orientation to prepare for these challenges. Companies can offer language courses, courses on cultural differences, and relocation training for the manager and his/her family. Further, global managers need to be assisted to bring about attitudinal adjustments to absorb cultural differences and to interact with colleagues in the new location, as all these factors will have a bearing on his/ her performance. Global managers can therefore be defined as those who operate across cultures. Some of these managers would have worked in as many as 20-30 countries or can have responsibilities spanning a 100 countries. More the number of countries included in one's span of responsibility, more complex is the global manager's work. This book makes a humble attempt to present some of the myriad challenges encountered by global managers in the course of their work. It also includes perspectives of the skills and competencies required of a global manager to be successful. This book will serve as a useful reading reference for business managers, human resource managers, management consultants, business teachers and business students.
