This innovative text offers a truly global perspective incorporating research from around the world. Focusing on the most important aspect of international management - leadership in a cross-cultural, multi-domestic and multi-cultural environment - Holt draws from his expansive international experience and expertise to produce a work that offers a broad-based principles approach to international management backed by extensive cross-cultural research. Features: * Reflected throughout the text is Holt's vast international experience, which involves work in 35 countries--including Eastern Europe, Japan, China, Southeast Asia, Russia, and Mexico--for universities, management consultants, and the U.S. government. He founded the Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies at Lingnan College in Hong Kong and under a U.S. government grant worked in Sri Lanka to formulate a strategy for an international graduate business school. * Text material is presented in a very organized, easy-to-follow manner, beginning with broad-based global management issues, followed by focused strategic planning, culture, human resource management, and then leadership. * Backed by extensive cross-cultural research, each chapter features assorted examples comparing management theory and practice of such topics as negotiating, values, communication, and leadership in North America, Europe, Asia, Mexico, Russia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and other areas. Cases and illustrations are drawn from the author's research as well as his personal experience. * The text couples a strong theory emphasis with discussions, examples, and exercises emphasizing practical management issues. Students gain insight into real-world management practices and problems common to small foreign subsidies through large multinational corporations. * The text offers a broad-based principles approach to international management, focusing on entrepreneurial, services, and foreign manufacturing issues--not just the traditional U.S. manufacturing or HRM topics. * The role of global integration is a founding theme for discussions on strategy, organization, and management development, and underscores topics on motivation, career development, and leadership. * Ethics and social responsibility are covered early in the text in Chapter 3. * Chapter 7, "Cultural Dimensions of International Management" emphasizes values and cultural comparisons. * Chapter 11, "Human Resources: Managing Expatriates" spotlights the problems and issues of management overseas, while Chapter 12 also emphasizes HRM issues with its focus on training, development, team, and career issues in global management. * Pedagogy features include end-of-chapter objectives, chapter glossaries, up-to-date references, end-of-chapter experiential exercises, and end-of-part cases integrated with text topics.
