Abstract :

The Academy of Management Review reports that many corporate expatriate managers fail because they were not able to adapt to the culture and society in foreign locales. To increase success rates, corporations should provide mangers with training before they leave so that they can develop new skills to function in new surrounds such as: business communication skills; leadership skills; and language skills. Additionally, the training should be tailored to individual managers' needs and include managers' families.
