The Global Challenge
International Human Resource Management

Third Edition


March 2016 | 530 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Formerly published by Chicago Business Press, now published by Sage

Since strategy, organizational capabilities, and people management are increasingly intertwined in multinational firms The Global Challenge 2e takes a general management perspective on the issues associated with international human resources. Each chapter in this book is a stand-alone guide to a particular aspect of international human resource management (HRM) – from the history and overview of international human resource management in the first chapter to the functional implications for human resource professionals in the last, from building multinational coordination to managing the human side of cross-border acquisitions.

The authors build on the traditional agenda of international human resource management—how to respond to cultural and institutional differences, manage cross-border mobility, and develop global leaders. This new edition contains the latest advances from research and practice.
