Editorial Reviews


"Gooderham and Nordhaug have succeeded in finding just the right spot in the triangle of strategy, cultural understanding, and organisation management. Their book is immediately usable comes with excellent cases, and focuses on the key issues of cross national organisational management. It is also one of those rare academic texts that is clear to read while offering superb insight and depth. I like their book and am happy to recommend it." Michael Segalla, Dept of Management and HRM, Groupe HEC

"In times where the human side of corporations becomes more and more crucial, Gooderham and Nordhaug's book International Management offers important insights and inspiration to both multinational companies and students on how companies globalise their human knowledge and competencies and balance their global and local responsibilities." Majken Schultz, Professor, Copenhagen Business School

"We are moving fast into a global world where the managerial challenge is to generate and transfer knowledge across boundaries. Gooderham and Nordhaug illuminate the different aspects of this challenge in terms of structure, competence development, and people - and not least the ehthical dilemmas for multinational leaders. Their book provides a holistic yet practical perspective, with well chosen cases that make this come alive for the reader." Paul Evans, INSEAD

"This book is about modern management of multinational corporations. Developing key competences within networks requires new approaches, and this book provides that. It is particularly good to see rich, specific company cases that help the reader to focus on implementation of management practices. The book is equally important when it comes to developing new, fruitful concepts that can be applied in real business life. It is an excellent piece of work." Peter Lorange, IMD, Switzerland

"Many speak of the linkage between human resources, competencies, organisational performance and the context multinational companies operate within. The text by Gooderham and Nordhaug provides an overview of this. Clearly written, with a convincing theoretical background and numerous real business cases and examples, it constitutes an ideal basis for students interested in the subject of multinationals and their roles in the contemporary global economic landscape." Wolfgang Mayrhofer, Wirtschaftsuniversitat Wien
