9780071283144: International Management: Culture, Strategy, and Behavior

Changes in the global business environment continue at an accelerated pace. The challenges for international management reflect this dynamism and the increasing unpredictability of global economic and political events. The challenge in today’s uncertain geopolitical and economic environment is to learn and effectively practice international management. Past assumptions must always be tested and challenged, and best practices will continuously evolve in response to changing environmental and competitive conditions. Those with the knowledge and skills to apply the contents of this text on international management will be taking a huge step toward gaining a competitive advantage over those who do not have such a perspective. They will be in a strong position to gain a broad understanding and to take specific steps for implementation of effective managing across cultures. In the seventh edition of International Management, Luthans and Doh have taken care to retain the effective foundation gained from research and practice over the past decades. At the same time, they have fully incorporated important new and emerging developments that have changed what international managers are currently facing and likely to face in the coming years. Of special importance is that students of international management understand what will be expected of them from the range of stakeholders with whom they interact.

From the Publisher:

Chapter opening vignettes from Business Week Magazine. These recent, relevant short news stories show how chapter topics relate to the real world of business and get students immediately interested in the chapter material, which leads to active and attentive reading.
World of Business Week Revisited consists of discussion questions (at the end of each chapter) pertaining to the opening vignette that require students to draw from the chapter material for answers. As a teaching tool suggested answers to these discussion questions can be found in the instructor's manual. Multiple choice and true/false questions from the opening vignette will be placed in the test bank.
Internet Exercises (at the end of every chapter) require students to use the Internet to find information needed to answer relevant questions about the chapter topic. Ex. Chapter 3 - Going Worldwide with Wal-Mart; Chapter 10 - Motorola in China.
