Confronting the wide range of factors that management face in relation to global changes, this volume focuses on the implication of these changes for organizations. By presenting its case using a variety of analytical tools ranging from formal game theoretical systems to inductive models based on case studies,this volume concentrates on three main areas: the implications of global change on the competitive environment for employment and working practices; the influence of the international business environment in decision-making; and the importance of cultural and institutional diversity. Through its comprehensive approach this book will stimulate business managers, academics and students to clarify, develop and extend the many complex scenarios that are integral to the debate on how business organizations can benefit from the challenges produced by global change.
