In the last blog we looked at the mindset that would be necessary for one to be a practitioner in OB. In today's blog we begin having a look at some of the challenges a manager would have to face in a globalized work setting.
Let’s begin with understanding the difference between "international" and "globalized" organization. International organization meant that a business would conduct its business across the national borders - a strict sense of organization's nationality could be sensed in the usage of the word. In contrast, a globalized organization implies that the organization is free of national boundaries and it operates in a borderless world.
When organization move beyond their national boundaries some of the host of issues that hit hard for a manager in such a setting could be listed below
- Globalizing the firm's operations to compete in the global market
- Leading a diverse work force
- Encouraging Positive ethics, character and personal integrity
- Advancing and implementing technological innovation in the workspace
Over the next few blogs we look at some of these challenges that the managers would have to face in a globalized setting.
