9780470510728: Managing Complexity in Global Organizations (IMD Executive Development Series)

This book delivers new IMD insights on an emerging challenge - how to deal with overwhelming complexity. Global organizations face a complex decision-making environment. On one side, diversity of cultures, customers, competitors and regulations creates complexity; on the other, competitive pressures cause expanding countries to extract more synergies across products and regions. In such a climate, a new way of thinking, acting and organizing is needed beyond the familiar ‘control’ mindset.

Drawing together insights from across the expert faculty, Managing Complexity in the Global Organization presents IMD’s framework on how to understand complexity and its four key drivers (diversity; interdependence; ambiguity and flux), along with solutions on specific issues in a variety of functions, industries and markets. The focus is on providing practical solutions based on real-life examples.

From the Back Cover:

This book delivers new and proven insights on an emerging management challenge – how to deal with overwhelming complexity. Globally active organizations have to cope with the most complex of all managerial decision-making environments.

In such a climate, a new way of thinking, acting and organizing is needed beyond the familiar ‘control’ mindset.

Drawing together insights from across the expert faculty, Managing Complexity in the Global Organizations presents IMD’s framework on how to better understand complexity and its four key drivers (diversity; interdependence; ambiguity and flux), along with solutions on specific issues in a variety of functions, industries and markets (including developing nations such as China and India). The focus is on providing relevant solutions for managers and executives based on a meaningful illustrations and real-life examples.
