Goodbye, Kulturschock! Rund 1,5 Millionen Manager weltweit arbeiten fern ihres Heimatlandes. Doch gibt es nicht nur Schwaben, die in China Dependancen aufbauen, oder Wiener, die ins US-Headquarter entsandt werden; es gibt längst auch das „Ausland im Inland“, etwa den deutschen Abteilungsleiter, der sich in einer russisch geführten Niederlassung zurechtfinden muss. Die Praxis zeigt: Viele Geschäfte stocken oder scheitern, weil das Bewusstsein fehlt, wie man in und mit „fremden Welten“ zurechtkommt. Wenn Menschen unterschiedlicher Kulturen einander begegnen, bleibt wie bei Eisbergen zunächst vieles unter der Oberfläche verborgen. Führungskräfte sind dann gefordert, „Eisberge zum Tanzen“ zu bringen.

The 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak in West Africa shocked the world with its devastation and its rapid migration to multiple continents. As the systems meant to respond to this sort of epidemic failed, the disease exposed not just weaknesses in international infectious disease surveillance and management, but the failures of governments, humanitarian organizations, and international institutions to handle the legal, ethical, and economic questions that arose with an event of this scale. GLOBAL MANAGEMENT OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE AFTER EBOLA unites the insights of Ebola's first responders with those the world's foremost experts in law, economics, vaccine development, and global migration to identify missed opportunities from the Ebola crisis -- and to apply these lessons to emerging infectious disease threats. Framed with critical discussions of both the global health financing infrastructures that precipitated the response and the ethical and human rights dilemmas that resulted from it, this volume is much more than postmortem to an outbreak: it is a vital, sometimes damning examination of where we've been and where we're going in the face of emerging infectious diseases.

The theme of this new edition of Cross-Cultural Business Behavior is CHANGE. First of all, cultures change. In markets around the world, business behavior is constantly evolving, impelled by generational shifts, improvements in education, and (especially) increasing exposure to the world marketplace. That is why all of the book's 43 'Negotiator Profiles' have been thoroughly updated, with new cases and fresh examples added. In addition to the change in culture, international managers' challenges have changed too. For example, just a few years ago, participants at global management seminars around the world were mainly interested in how to communicate and negotiate with overseas partners. But, they now find that their toughest challenges are how to manage overseas subsidiaries, strategic alliances, and international partnerships. To reflect these new realities, the book's time-tested framework for understanding cross-cultural negotiating behavior has been expanded to include a wide variety of practical pointers on managing in today's global marketplace. This fifth edition is important for everyone involved with global management, whether student or manager, because cultures and business challenges do change. The book is an essential survival guide for doing business in cultures other than one's own.

Research Paper from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, , course: Global Management, language: English, abstract: “Si vis pacem para bellum.” versus “Si vis pacem para pacem.” For times immemorial man has sought to achieve a state of freedom from outer conflict guided by the pole of the above continuum designated by the Ancient Romans as “Si vis pacem para bellum”, translating as “If you want peace, prepare for war”. Those who deviated strongly from this implicit assumption by positioning themselves differently on the continuum and thereby reversed this logic were disappointing the mainstream cultures of their eras and were considered out-group personae non gratae by the dominant cultural players. This study shows how the dilemma could be resolved.
