Organizations who want to keep their competitive advantage in global markets need to be able to successfully operate across cultures. The challenge is that there are currently not many cases that integrate elements of global competency that represent the challenges and idiosyncrasy of operating in multicultural business environments.

Cases on Global Leadership in the Contemporary Economy is a critical reference source that focuses on cases that present scenarios of organizations or individuals who are immersed in environments that are impacted by cultural factors and how these factors affect skills related to global leadership. It presents research on the impact of cultural dimensions in leadership, the importance that understanding culture can have on the effectiveness of international business strategies, and how motivation is perceived differently across cultures. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as knowledge management, social enterprise, and global business, this book is ideally designed for managers, executives, human resources officials, government officials, students, professionals, and researchers.
