The emergence of economic powerhouses, growth of multinational companies and aggressive expansion policies of global corporate giants has led to the phenomenal growth of business operations across continents. This, however, has not only greatly increased the complexity of management decisions but has made obsolete the role of traditional business managers on the global platform. Such a scenario has led organizations to look for professionals who are imbibed with in-depth knowledge of global affairs, cultures, languages and possess solid business acumen to successfully negotiate the complex global landscape and create real time value, giving rise to the all-encompassing profession of Global Management.
The role of a Global Manager calls for effective multi-dimensional skills. Their expertise includes technical skills, people skills, soft skills as well as hard skills to organize, analyze and motivate people at international levels. Global managers broadly work in the capacity of: Country Managers, Functional Managers and Business Managers.
