Revision with unchanged content. Cross-cultural training for international assignees in service of internationally operating companies is an important topic in a rapidly globalising world. In which ways is cross-cultural training linked to firms' varying degrees of internationalisation? Taking this link into account how can cross-cultural training be appropriately structured and successfully performed? In answering these and many other need-to-know questions concerning cross-cultural training and internationalisation, Christian V Kirschner generates insights into organisational cross-cultural training practices and explores from a corporate- and country-level perspective the context in which these practices are embedded. The author presents valuable insights by offering a holistic theoretical model of cross-cultural training in an organisational context based on a comprehensive review of the relevant literature. From a practical perspective he gives theoretically grounded guidelines and best practices for leveraging crosscultural training in corporate organisational practice. Academically rigorous yet practically relevant, this book addresses students, researchers and practising managers alike.
