Managing Performance Abroad from the Author: Arno Haslberger. In a global economy full of multinational firms, international human resource management (including expatriation, career management, and talent management) is a growing topic in the business and management literature and in universities. A thorough understanding of the adjustment of expatriates to their new environment is critical not only for selection and preparation of potential expatriates, but also for the management of expatriate performance. Managed well, expatriates can be key contributors to organizational success while abroad and even after repatriation. Poor understanding and management of expatriate issues, on the other hand, may lead to underperformance and increased turnover of expatriates and repatriates. Managing Performance Abroad summarizes and extends what is known about the topic of expatriate management and adjustment, covering all the major authors and presenting a new approach to the adjustment process. At present, expatriate adjustment is only covered as a chapter in books on international HRM and HRD. Much of this literature relies on outdated concepts and evidence. Furthermore, most business research and management publications use an expatriate adjustment model that was originally published about two decades ago. This book is the first dedicated solely to the subject of expatriate adjustment, enabling readers to formulate research questions and hypotheses and to develop expatriation policies and support systems that optimize the performance of expatriates. It presents a re-formulation of the model underlying management research about expatriate adjustment, providing guidance for researchers and practitioners alike.

Management And Economic Development from the Author: A.R. Negandhi. The ping-pong diplomacy and its aftermath discussion, coupled with the entry of communist China into the United Nations and the subsequent expulsion of Taiwan, will generate considerable political dialogue about the changing balance of power and the fate of the other China. These political discussions will obviously overshadow the true role and function of the existence of Taiwan. Given the time, Taiwan could become a model for the development process for other emerging countries. Taiwan's experience with eco nomic development has real relevance for many countries. For exam ple, in less than two decades Taiwan has achieved the industrial and economic growth that should well make it the envy of nearly all other developing nations. Its per capita income is exceeded only by Japan among the countries of the Far East. Yet, despite vigorous economic and industrial growth, obvious breakdowns in this economic progress come into view. The lack of managerial input threatens to become a real bottleneck. The study reported in this volume examines the feasibility and utility of transferring advanced management know-how and practices into the industrial enterprises in Taiwan in order to generate further economic and industrial growth. The study itself concerns management practices and effectiveness of American subsidiaries, Japanese sub sidiaries, and comparable local firms in Taiwan.

International Handbook Of Practice Based Performance Management from the Author: Patria de Lancer Julnes. Within the field of Evaluation, performance measurement is fast becoming a prevalent framework or set of tools to use in implementation analysis, formative and summative evaluations, and even needs assessments. Many of the measurement techniques that evaluators employ overlap with those of performance management, so evaluators are able to learn and use this framework quite readily. Recent approaches have acknowledged limitations in the implemented meaurement systems and developed new practice-based strategies for effective ongoing measurement of program activities and use in guiding management. Significantly, these new strategies are being developed both in the United States and internationally and need to be brought together for collaborative learning and dissemination to practitioners and scholars. Julnes's text will serve as a vehicle for the dissemination of these new performance measurement strategies. The book will have a combination of conceptual and practical applications with an emphasis on cutting-edge practices in the US and abroad. The text boasts two unique features: first, though most of the chapters deal with performance measurement in the US., the text represents the most notable examples of performance measurement in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Eastern Europe; second, the book will be unique in the way that its structure will support the integration of theory and practice, with linked chapters that introduce the literature on key topics, present case studies with "lessons learned," and then provide clear guidance for practical "how-to/skill building."

Leaving America from the Author: John R. Wennersten. Today more than ever, large numbers of Americans are leaving the United States. It is estimated that by the end of the decade, some 10 million of the brightest and most talented Americans, representing an estimated $136 billion in wages, will be living and working overseas. Leaving America is an important reexamination of one of the most central stories in the history of American culture--the story of the immigrant coming to the Promised Land.
