More and more firms view the acquisition of foreign firms as an important component of their internationalization strategy. An important but frequently overlooked condition for the successful implementation of such a strategy is the consistent and appropriate integration of human resource management into the overall internationalization strategy (global, multilocal, hybrid). Offers guidelines on the significance and contents of human resource management practices in this context. The emphasis is on the strategically appropriate integration of the target organization with the acquiring corporation.
