Ihis article presents a working definition of

two key concepts in international human resource management: a global manager

and an expatriate manager. The expatriate manager or the international manager is defined, in a narrow sense, as an executive in a leadership position that involves international assignments. The global manager is defined, in a broad sense, as an executive who has a hands-on understanding of international business, has an ability to work across cross-cultural, organizational, and functional boundaries, and is able to balance the simultaneous demands of short-term profitability and growth. The article's objectives are to clarify the main differences between the two concepts, to review the principal contributions to the literature on this subject, and to identify the organizational processes and human resource management tools that can influence both the success of the expatriate assignments and the development of global competencies.

The first set of competencies is linked to the active roles that the global manager should play in order to manage across a number of countries and cultures simultaneously. 1995) defines the mindset as "a predisposition to see the world in a particular way that sets boundaries and provides explanations for why things are the way they are. able to scan the world from a broad perspective. professional. and approaches to conducting business • Works with and leam from people from many cultures simultaneously • Creates a culturally synergistic organizational environment • Adapts to living in many foreign cultures • Uses cross-cultural skills on a daily bask throughout his or her career • Interiu:ts with foreign colleagues as equals Local Responsiveness Synergistic Learning • Works with and coaches people in each foreign culture separately or sequentially • Integrates foreigners into the headquarters" national organizational culture IVansition and Adaptation Cross-cultural Interaction Collaboration • Adapts to living in a foreign culttire • Uses cross-cultural interaction skills primarily on foreign assignments • Interacts with colleagues from within clearly defined hierarchies of stmctural and cultural dominance and subordination • Expatriation or inpatriation primarily to get the job done Foreign Experience • Transpatriation for career and organization development environment). consist of championing international strategy. or organizational objectives.

DETERMINANTS OF EXPATRIATE AND GLOBAL MANAGERS' SUCCESS The research on determinants of expatriate success is also much more developed than research on global managers. 1992. 1994). 1981. 1988: Black & Mendenhall. 1989. Tung (1981) identified four groups of variables that contribute to expatriate success: technical competence on the job. those who "leave their heart at home". 1991). Derr & Oddou. "softer" factors. those who "go native": and those who become "dual citizens" — expatriates with high allegiance to both the parent and local affiliate. Gertsen. 2) the personality profiles and psychological attributes of successful international managers (Phalak. 1992). 1992. and Mendenhall (1992) add that the global assignment is destined to fail if it is based only on a superticial selection of candidates on the presumable technical and managerial competence to put "the foreign fire out. Tung (1981) adds that the importance of these selection criteria varies according to the category of tasks the international manager is expected to perform: chief executive officer. Dual-career couples are also more likely to turn down international assignments because of the expected negative effects of a career interruption (Stephens & Black. 1992). and preparation programs and support policies during and after the completion of the international assignment is regarded as a ver>' important reason in determining the failure of overseas appointments. 1991. 1992: Forster. Smith. Harrison. 1982: Pucik. Tung. 1990). 1981: Black & Stephens. developing a high dual allegiance seems to be the best way to prevent failure after an international assignment and has proven to have positive personal and organizational consequences. 1990. Black and Gregersen (1992) and Gregersen (1992) have explained expatriate failure by taking a closer look at the fonns of allegiance developed by the expatriate toward both the local operation and the parent company. troubleshooter.

Forster (1992) focused on four key dimensions (related to job mobility) to explain Ihe attitudes toward accepting assignments abroad: 1) the performance of employees abroad and the causes of expatriate failures (Tung. 1989: Dowling.S). and interpersonal abilities as well as adaptability potential of the spouse and other family members (Tung. !t is clear [hat future research should include investigations of the effects of dual-earner families.

EFFECTIVE DEPLOYMENT OF EXPATRIATES We have reviewed the recent literature on HR management practices related to expatriate managers in order to identify examples of effective HR techniques that may support effective deployment of expatriate managers (see Exhibit 5). whether or not he or she has a supportive family. examples of companies that have implemented the practice (as cited in the literature) are included. leadership factors. adaptability factors. according to Wills and Barham (1992). training and career development. Most of the studies are descriptive.

Refiecting the nature of the field. The psychological maturity refers to three additional attributes of global managers: their strong curiosity that drives them to learn. The list of citations is meant to be illustrative. Developing International and Global Managers Not surprisingly. The cognitive complexity refers to the ability to see multiple dimensions in a reduction. The culturaltoughness dimension refers to the understanding of differences between countries. data on nonWestern firms appear only infrequently. and language skills. Kets de Vries and Mead (1992) identified five principal categories of factors contributing lo the development of global leaders: management development. the majority of conceptual and empirical studies in this area have thus far focused mainly on HR practices related to expatriates. selection. Oddou (1991) states that there arc never any guarantees in identifying what constitutes the '"righr" person for the international assignment. and the candidate's capacity to deal with stress are essential elements that enhance a firm's chances of employing a successful expatriate. The perceptual dimension refers to the ability lo understand why foreigners behave the way they do. The othersoriented dimension measures the expatriate's ability to interact effectively with host-country nationals and consists of two sub-factors: relationship development and willingness to communicate. the scope of the literature is much more sparse. Mendenhall and Oddou (1985). core competencies of international managers may be described as cognitive complexity. The key challenge is the operationalization of the outcome variables that are seldom linked to objective measures of individual or organizational perfonnance. and training and education. Expatriate managers should be nonjudgmental and non-evaluative in interpreting the behavior ot host-country nationals. but whenever appropriate. Research on global managers is substantially less developed. 1994). new rules and new faces). A number of key themes emerge from our review. Ronen (1990) incorporates the dimensions of expatriate success identified by Tung (1981) and Mendenhall and Oddou (1985) and identifies five categories of attributes of success: job factors: relational dimensions. The self-oriented dimension is composed of three sub-factors: reinforeemenl subslilution. emotional energy. and repatriation. These five categories are broadly comparable to those identified by Tung (1981). and training: not much work has been done on performance management and compensation of globalization. and still basically in a conceptual stage. personal development. not exhaustive. their willingness to apply a great deal of psychological energy to unravel the complexity of a situation. and to identify the relationships between those different dimensions.because they believe that expatriate acculturation is a multidimensional process. sociability. and psychological maturity. leadership factors.
