"Every year, corporations establish thousands of joint ventures (JVs), investing hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, between 25% and 40% of all foreign investments take place via equity JVs.

Users of this text examine such essential topics as the measurement and analysis of the cultural, political and economic dimensions of the international environment; the formation of internationalization strategies, including entry mode choice and strategic alliances; the analysis of the competitive implications of multinational firms and business groups; multinational, subsidiary and expatriate management; and the management of ethical issues
Japanese subsidiaries in the new global economy( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1970's, there have been many changes in the ways in which Japanese firms have conducted business. The editors of this volume examine the strategies of Japanese subsidiaries in the new global economy and present, in four parts, a comprehensive picture of the nature of Japanese multinational enterprises. The book addresses the overall nature of Japanese investment in international markets, and its broader implications for corporate performance. The entry mode choice and its relationship to performance is then examined, in an attempt to establish overall trends in the performance of various modes. The focus then shifts explicitly to joint ventures since nearly half of all Japanese subsidiaries take this form. Finally, the management strategies that Japanese firms have used in their foreign subsidiaries are investigated. Japanese Subsidiaries in the New Global Economy utilizes empirical analyses based on a very large, longitudinal data set, coupled with state-of-the-art conceptual development"--Dust jacket

Internationales Management : Auswirkungen globaler Veränderung auf Wettbewerb, Unternehmensstrategie und Märkte ; Klaus Macharzina zum 60. Geburtstag = International management by Johann Engelhard( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in German and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die verstärkte Öffnung nationaler Volkswirtschaften in Verbindung mit der Etablierung differenzierter Integrationszonen (EWWU, NAFTA etc.), die Entwicklung neuer Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien sowie der beschleunigte Übergang von monolithischen Hierarchien zu grenzüberschreitenden Unternehmensnetzwerken begünstigen die nachhaltige Veränderung von Markt- und Gesellschaftsstrukturen. Dieser Wandel vollzieht sich in einem hohen Maß an Dynamik und tiefgreifenden Folgen. Die in dieser Festschrift zusammengefaßten 21 Beiträge eines renommierten internationalen Autorenkreises haben die globalen Veränderungen der Rahmenbedingungen des Internationalen Managements aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven von Theorie und Praxis zum Gegenstand. Neben dieser Gemeinsamkeit in der thematischen Fokussierung ist ihnen die gleiche Absicht ihrer Autoren zu eigen: sie wurden geschrieben als Hommage an Universitätsprofessor Dr. Klaus Macharzina, dessen wissenschaftliches Werk stets von demselben Grundanliegen bestimmt war: Internationalität der Wissenschaft vom Management
