Context, Processes and People
Edited by Thomas Garavan, Alma McCarthy and Ronan Carbery
The increase in global teamwork is a significant theme in contemporary business environments. Organizations are expanding their operations globally (Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, or Africa) for easier access to world markets and resources, while developing international visibility, product localization, maximizing firm value to shareholders, improving support for global customers, and other potential advantages. This chapter examines the research and practices in global team management and development. The chapter offers a conceptual framework of, and practical guidelines for, global teams, integrating relevant literature on team development, cross-cultural management, organization development, and international human resources. The chapter discusses practice implications for IHRD professionals and sets out current and future research directions.
