International Management Behavior: Leading with a Global Mindset, 6th Edition (0470685301) cover image


Now in its sixth edition, International Management Behavior continues to help students develop the knowledge, perspective, and skills they need in order to conduct global business successfully. The combination of well-chosen, new and classic cases, as well as a completely revised text, provides excellent exposure to real-life management issues and a field-tested framework for understanding cross-cultural dynamics. Elimination of the readings has provided for greater flexibility and customization.

For the sixth edition, the structure of the book has been totally revised and the text thoroughly updated to Reflect the authors’ recent experiences. Material in the original chapters has been expanded and there are new chapters on managing change in global organizations and one on managing global teams and networks. The concept of the global mindset is used as the integrating theme that establishes a framework for the book making it applicable at both individual/team and organization levels. This book continues its tradition and orientation about managing people from different cultures and managing global organizations to get effective results.

This is much more than a new edition. It is a huge step forward. The strategy and culture chapters get in much closer to the small, focused details that make such a difference in implementation and that are so difficult to teach. Separating out personal integrity and corporate citizenship allows for a close examination of critical issues that are all too often glossed over. The expanded explanation of the MBI model works well.”
