Globalization, an inevitable phenomenon in human history, has been bringing the world closer through exchange of goods and services, advancements in information communication technologies (ICTs), global diffusion of technologies, and cultural awareness. Recent developments and trends within the global business arena present managers with challenging situations. Competing in the twenty-first century and beyond requires firms to invest in the increasingly refined managerial skills needed to perform effectively in a multicultural business environment. Global companies are faced with varied and dynamic environments in which they must accurately assess the political, legal, technological, ethical, and cultural factors that shape their strategies and operations. The success of a company's global operation often depends significantly on the manager's cultural skills, as well as the ability to carry out the company's strategy within the context of the host country's business practices. While globalization is a vehicle for, and a consequence of human progress, it is also a confused process that requires change. The change process presents the manager with challenging strategic options. Globalization of Business: Theories and Strategies for Tomorrow's Managers addresses the above challenges. It offers managers and business students strategies on how to become globally competitive in a complex international management environment. Contributors to the volume offer their insights into the issues every global manager needs to understand such as the nature of the global business environment, entry mode choice, global strategic positioning, global human resource management, human rights and ethical issues. The book covers general as well as specific topics, including assumptions, theories, and practices of globalization. It is expected that the book will enable business students, managers and corporate leaders to avoid common drawbacks in their quest to build a successful global firm that will benefit all.

Savvy managers no longer look at contracts and the law reactively but use them proactively to reduce their costs, minimize their risks, secure key talent, collaborate to innovate, protect intellectual property, and create value for their customers that is superior to that offered by competitors. To achieve competitive advantage in this way managers need a plan. Proactive Law for Managers provides this plan; The Manager's Legal PlanTM. George Siedel and Helena Haapio first discuss the traditional, reactive approach used by many managers when confronted with the law, then contrast it with a proactive approach that enables the law and managers' legal capabilities to be used to prevent problems, promote successful business, and achieve competitive advantage. Proactive Law for Managers shows how to use contracts and the law to create new value and innovate in often neglected areas – and implement ideas in a profitable manner.

Featuring contributions from both management researchers and legal practitioners, Managing the Modern Law Firm presents the latest insights from Management Studies in an approachable, practical, and relevant manner for lawyers and other professionals involved directly and indirectly with the management of law firms.

The rash of corporate scandals in recent years underscores a fact too often ignored in the business world: flouting the law holds serious consequences. Indeed, all it takes is one rogue trader, one greedy executive, or one misinformed manager to place an entire organization at risk. But respected legal expert Constance E. Bagley argues that staying out of trouble is only part of the picture when it comes to legality in business. In Winning Legally, Bagley shows how managers can proactively harness the power of the law to maximize corporate value, marshal human and financial resources, and manage risk. Through scores of classic and contemporary examples across the business landscape, this no-nonsense guide completely re-frames the relationship of law to business. Bagley explains how managers can use the law as a strategic tool to help select and work effectively with legal advisers, spot legal issues before they become problems, weigh the legal risks of specific opportunities, and more. Ultimately, the responsibility for making tough business decisions lies with managers--not with lawyers. This timely book shows how managers can combine business audacity and vision with integrity and respect for the law to build truly great and enduring firms. Constance E. Bagley is an associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School. She was formerly a partner of Bingham McCutchen LLP and co-author of The Entrepreneur's Guide to Business Law.

How to Create Joint Value Alliances, partnerships, acquisitions, mergers, and joint ventures are no longer the exception in most businesses—they are part of the core strategy. As managers look to external partners for resources and capabilities, they need a practical roadmap to ensure that these relationships will create value for their firm. They must answer questions like these: Which business combinations do we need? How should we govern them? Will their results justify our investments? Benjamin Gomes-Casseres explains how companies create value by “remixing” resources with other companies. Based on decades of consulting and academic research, Remix Strategy shows how three laws shape the success of any business combination: • First Law: The combination must have the potential to create more value than the parties could create on their own. Which elements from each business need to be combined to create joint value? • Second Law: The combination must be designed and managed to realize the joint value. Which partners best fit our strategic goals? How should we manage the integration? • Third Law: The value earned by the parties must motivate them to contribute to the collaboration. How will we share the joint value created? Will the returns shift over time? Supported by examples from a wide range of industries and companies, and filled with practical tools for applying the three laws, this book helps managers design and lead a coherent strategy for creating joint value with outside partners.
