Developing International Managers

As they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining. The twin drivers – globalization and technology , operating simultaneously have ushered in the new Economy into India in more recent times.

In studying the growth and diversity of international companies and the way in which they manage their global operations, what emerges is that there is a growing need for managers with international experience and ability. Such managers need to possess such competencies if they are to operate successfully for the benefit of their companies in international arena.

Organizations should use this slowdown to train future global leaders who are competent enough to think globally, appreciate cultural diversity, are technologically savvy, can build partnerships and alliances and share leadership.
