Abstract

Describes a comprehensive 14‐week predeparture training programme and an on‐location orientation session that companies may find useful when they transfer personnel to foreign assignments. Increasing numbers of Western professionals go to foreign countries on assignment. Their success or failure in these assignments largely hinges upon their adaptation to the new set of living and working conditions. A well designed training programme can enhance the chances for success and minimize failures.
