RESEARCH ABOUT INTERNATIONAL-IZATION
Better selecting, preparing and leading back: This work deals with the internationalization of German organizations. Especially it answers the question, what it is that is making managers in foreign countries really successful. To do this, we interviewed managers in foreign countries and specialist departments in Germany. So, we could give organizations an empirically based benchmark about the process quality according foreign assignments and the organization’s level of internationalization. To do this, various tools have been developed:
- Individual management-audit: How fit is the manager for the foreign assignment?
Conceptualization and conduction of international assessmentcentres
with the aim to select and develop the management
- Audit internationalization-level of the organization
