About this book


This book provides cutting edge research and knowledge and an academic study of the impact of globalisation in different areas affecting management and how management is responding. It gives a comprehensive analysis of what is actually happening and likely future trends. It is not just a focus on 'convergence' arguments, but integrates a broader view of still remaining regional and national differences in management and organisation. The book draws on new theoretical approaches in the field of international business, highlighting areas such as Anglo-German subsidiaries of MNCs, HRM practices and change management processes or employment relations in US-based MNCs in Europe and many other aspects.
