Dear Academy of International Business Colleagues,

Please consider submitting a chapter to our new book on Strategic - Global Management.  


The world has evolved and a result, the concept of globalization remains the focus of investigation by scholars and practitioners across disciplines and industries. Almost every country¡¦s economy is either dependent on, or heavily involved in technology, especially those categorized as ¡§Emerging Economies¡¨. It is within this framework that global managers face serious geopolitical issues. These challenges encompass geopolitical and economic risks, foreign country expansion, foreign currency wars, country of origin and brand recognition as a result of frauds and falsification, data breach, etc. In addition, changes in the Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal, Environmental (PESTLE) forces significantly affect the global business landscape. Therefore, there is a need for the global manager to stay informed and constantly vigilant of the threatening and potentially catastrophic events that may negatively affect the global operations. As a result, scholars are compelled to engage in conducting scientific research whose results mediate the potentially negative impact caused by the ever-changing external environment.  In turn, managers can apply the findings to their operations to improve productivity, profits, return on investment thus reducing or preventing low levels of employees¡¦ motivation, low productivity, high staff turnover, all of which have a direct effect on the sustainable profitability and longevity of the firm. In sum, the handbook of research on geopolitical managerial issues will be beneficial to a wide audience including, but not limited to, scholars in higher education, doctoral students, managers across industries, consultants and government agencies.


Objective of the Book

The main purpose of this book is to focus on the challenges and opportunities Global Mangers face in the global interconnected business landscape.
