About this book

The ongoing progress of globalization has created a new need in multinational and international companies for managers who have the skills and competencies to be rotated anywhere in the world. While most books addressing global management have focused on the practitioner experience, theory, or academic knowledge relevant to one region or country, Global Enterprise Management unites all these approaches in a practical framework designed to provide students, educators, and practitioners with the skills to succeed in the global managerial landscape. Inspired by his 35 years in international hospitality management, Camillo brings together an interdisciplinary team to break down the challenges facing managers in global companies, including supply chains, business ventures, technology, accounting, marketing, and human resources. A collection of real-world case studies grounds theory in contemporary practice and directs the conversation toward the future.

Reviews

"This well-conceived collection in global enterprise management covers both the hot research topics and problems that managerial professionals may be confronted with. Perceptive observations, theoretical reflections and plausible solutions from international researchers are integrated into these two leading volumes. Some of the latest technological advances like cloud computing are involved in the study of management, which is quite eye-catching." - Jianli Wu, Professor, Dean of International Business College, South China Normal University, China

"This collection of essays highlights issues managers deal with in the global market place. Scholars' cross-disciplinary contributions from over seventeen countries focus on the dynamic challenges of globalization. From strategic tax issues and the confluence of diversity and ethics, to post acquisition strategies, the role of emotional intelligence in global leadership, and the concept of virtuality in globally dispersed teams, these edited volumes contribute to the ongoing scientific inquiry and are a welcome addition to current literature." - Martin Dannenmann, Principal/Director, Heidelberg Hotel Management School, Germany

"Managing a global enterprise in a diverse and dynamic environment poses challenges for international managers as they lead their companies through complex and ever-changing global economic, political, legal, technological, and cultural environments. This collection of essays is a useful tool for researchers of international management and practitioners across global industries." - Ilan Alon, Cornell Professor of International Business, Rollins College, USA; Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Emerging Markets
