Summary When managers in multinational companies are not properly prepared for assignments in foreign countries, the costs are great - for the managers themselves, for their organizations, and for their home countries. But how can expatriates prepare for such assignments? The selection-development-support framework described in this report not only identifies the important factors to consider when working overseas but also specifies ways to develop a talent pool of effective expatriates. Such factors as personality, early-life experiences, role of the spouse, language and cultural training, and repatriation are discussed in detail and recommendations for expatriate success are provided.
