The second edition of this popular textbook explores the latest approaches to cross-cultural management, as well as presenting strategies and tactics for managing international assignments and global teams. With a clear emphasis on learning and development, the text encourages students to acquire skills in multicultural competence that will be highly valued by their future employers. This has never been as important as now, in a world where, increasingly, all managers are global managers and where management practices and processes can differ significantly across national and regional boundaries. This edition has been updated after extensive market feedback to include new features: a new chapter on working and living abroad; applications boxes showing how theories and key concepts can be applied to solve real-life management problems; student questions to encourage critical thinking; and updated examples and references. Supplementary teaching and learning materials are available on a companion website at In addition, recommended in-depth cases for each chapter are available at
