The impact of globalization on managing organizations and the continued, rapid expansion of the market cannot be overstated. Managing human resources and labor relations is pivotal to the success of multinational corporations’ operational success. Managing people and operations across the globe requires a working knowledge of national culture and the ability to successfully transfer organizational knowledge, customs, and practices across borders.
This two-day program includes a team project. Participants will form self-selected teams during the first day of the program. Teams will select a multi-national corporation, possibly an employer of one of the participants, investigating and reporting on the different models of managing people and operations across the globe. Teams will provide a PowerPoint presentation to the class in the afternoon of the second day of the program.
