Abstract

Purpose

Reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting‐edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

For many organizations “going global” is not the aspiration or hope it once was. Neither is it the fear of the future, or a choice to be made. For an increasing number of companies, globalization has become just another fact of life; something they have to deal with, to utilize as part of their armoury of ways and means to cope in a hypercompetitive business arena.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to digest format.
