Summary The global business world appears to be changing and there is an ever greater focus on developing countries. This change in the international business environment is not reflected in the range of management textbooks currently available, as most are written from a developed country perspective. This book introduces and assesses the typical theories and management approaches that are popular in developed countries, from the perspective of managers in developing countries.
