Expatriates and globalization

In today's dynamic, global marketplace it is the responsibility of international HR managers to identify, cultivate, and develop the skills of the organization's future global leaders. The organization caught unprepared to move quickly in response to changing global strategies will likely miss out on numerous business opportunities.

The ability of expatriate managers to succeed in culturally diverse environments has a significant effect on the success or failure of the organization's various international operations.
Expatriate failure is a serious problem generally resulting from the lack of familial or situational readiness or cross-cultural adaptability of expatriates and their accompanying families.
