Abstract: There are two underlying purposes of this course. First, as the organizational environment becomes increasingly defined as international in nature, the course offers insight into managing a more complex, culturally diverse, spatially dispersed organization. The course can be beneficial to individuals who compete across international borders, who face competition from foreign companies operating in the U.S. or to those who manage a multinational company. Second, the course is useful for those who are concerned about the problems of contemporary management as an international perspective is used to examine American firms. Some of the topics that are studied include managing organizations that compete in declining industries, managing multicultural diversity, creating new, more flexible organizational designs and incorporating entrepreneurial activities into organizational structure. Objectives: 1. To define the notion of culture as it applies to the field of management. To distinguish between country, business and corporate culture. 2. To build “blended” cultures which combine country, business and corporate culture. To use blended cultures to design organizations, manage human resources and plan strategy. 3. To distinguish among those management models which apply to international business and those which must be modified according to recent research literature. 4. To explore the application of strategy models across international borders and to identify the implications of using those models on managerial decision-making. 5. To apply a global perspective in dealing with contemporary management problems in the U.S. 6. To explore the effect of globalization on activities and policies of personnel management.
