9780415802994: International Management: Strategic Opportunities & Cultural Challenges

McFarlin and Sweeney provide students with an accessible, application-oriented approach to international management, focusing on key challenges including motivation, leadership, and communication across cultural boundaries. The book gives students a global perspective on the process of hiring, training, and developing employees, as well as strategic decision making in relation to foreign markets. Questions, case studies, examples of creative problem solving, and testimonials from real-world managers operating in the international arena are just a few of the tactics McFarlin and Sweeney use to help students begin to think about applied theory on a global level. All chapters have been updated with recent articles from leading business sources and academic journals, and new case studies have been incorporated.

Review:

"International Organizational Behavior: Transcending Borders and Cultures by Dean McFarlin and Paul Sweeney builds on previous work by the authors and state-of-the-art research to provide an invaluable guide to anyone interested in managing in the international arena. Building on cultural frameworks and including actionable concepts and practical applications, the book covers management of individuals, teams, and personnel across borders. The most valuable components are the many linkages between theory of cross-cultural interactions and observed behavior in specific management-related instances, such as communication patterns, negotiation styles, and conflict management, among many others. A must-read in an incresingly complex and ever-changing world."

João Neiva de Figueiredo, Assistant Professor in the Department of Management at Saint Joseph's University, Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School

 

"The strength of this textbook is that it goes beyond other international textbooks by asking students to challenge their preconceived notions of other cultures as well as their own. It presents international management theories and then helps students critique what they have learned, providing intriguing examples from multiple perspectives. Critical thinking is a valuable tool for any student in a rapidly changing global environment and this textbook provides the opportunity to develop this skill."

Kristina A. Bourne, Assistant Professor of Management, University of Wisconsin -- Eau Claire

 

"McFarlin and Sweeney continue their record of providing an interesting, cohesive discussion of international management topics. As a former journalist, I appreciate how the authors have selected lively, current International Insights examples for the chapters. The book’s coverage enhances our students’ learning in other courses such as marketing, organizational behavior and strategy."
