As barriers to international trade and investment have fallen worldwide, multinational enterprises have become the leading engines of economic integration and growth, deploying global strategies to expand their reach. To implement such strategies in an increasingly complex environment, corporations are adopting network forms of organization. This book examines in detail the structures, strategies and processes employed in a variety of global network corporations, offering insight into the demands placed on international managers at every level.
Based on the findings of a research project sponsored by the Carnegie Bosch Institute, this is an in depth study of current topics most relevant to international management, with each chapter covering a specific set of issues that confront major corporation managers. Topics include:

* Strategic integration and decision making
* Structuring of joint ventures
* Headquarters -subsidiary relationships and roles
* International adaptation of Human Resource Management and Process Reengineering practices
* New competences required of international managers and leaders.

Featuring contributors from the USA, Europe and Asia, this is a truly international collection that provides detailed analysis of the contemporary multinational enterprise in its global context.

In my view, the critical role played by leadership and a comprehensive information system in global strategy development cannot be overstated, and I hope that this book will stimulate further research on these important issues.
