6. Examine international management strategies that emphasize global integration versus local adaptation.
6.1 Research global leadership and management issues for the 21st Century.
Managers/professors/leaders can disagree with one another. For example, I disagree with one statement made in this Unit’s Lesson:
“Ethics and etiquette issues are taken much more seriously in Asian and Latin American Countries than they are here in the U.S. ”
Etiquette, possibly or perhaps it is merely different.
Ethics, definitely not. I bring this point up because it is permissible for you to argue with statements made in textbooks, news articles, dissertations, etc. When you do, your different positions must be supported by facts and definitive research. For my disagreement on the “ethics” issue, I would base my position that US business persons generally are more ethical then those in Asia and Latin America on having had senior leadership positions in Venezuela, Bolivia, China, Japan and the Philippines. As the project manager for a shipyard servicing the Boeing Sea Launch command ship and the launch platform, I was never approached by any person asking for favors, kickbacks, to cut construction safety measures, etc.
In reference to the source document use for the lesson: ( In-Depth Integrative Case 4.2: “Chiquita’s Global Turnaround,” pp. 560-566.) I grew up on a Chiquita banana plantation and my father was its chief engineer. Guatemala was and still is a hotbed of ethics violations.
The above example is provided to help each student realize that his/her own background and experiences have value. And when your values are added to research, you will be prepared for international business issues and how to solve these for the best outcomes.
A secondary issue is to remember is that thoughtful disagreements and discussions generally lead to great solutions. One must remember that only one person nust make the final decision. Thomas Jefferson read documents and books provided him in two steamer trunks by Colony representatives around the world. Jefferson asked for every document that could be found on forming governments.
His first rejection was a pure democracy; his position was nothing would get done. The result of his long study was to form a “representative republic”. The Electoral College is also a result of best minds available arguing about all possible formations for the nation. Conclusion, do not be afraid to argue with your seniors and juniors to help you make well informed decisions.
