Global Mindsets: Exploration and Perspectives

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


Global Mindsets: Exploration and Perspectives seeks to tackle a topic that is relatively new in research and practice, and is considered by many to be critical for firms seeking to conduct global business. It argues that multiple mindsets exist (across and within organizations), that they operate in a global context, and that they are dynamic and undergo change and action. Part of the mindset(s) may depend upon place, situation and context where individuals and organizations operate. The book will examine the notion of "mindset" is situational and dynamic, especially in a global setting, why it is important for future scholars and managers and how it could be conceptualized. Global Mindsets: Exploration and Perspectives is split into two major sections; the first examines where the literature currently is with respect to the knowledge in the field and what conceptual frameworks guide the thinking. The second section provides and examines empirical evidence about how different organizations in different parts of the world practice global mindset in different aspects of their managerial functions. The book supports and complements research publications that come from strategy and management areas, and should help researchers determine areas of high potential research needs in the future. Given the fluid sense of global mindsets in action, the authors of this book have adopted a flexible and wide-ranging approach. Global Mindsets: Exploration and Perspectives includes conceptual chapters that push the current boundaries of research on the topic and empirical chapters that demonstrate how different organizations in different countries apply mindset perspectives in their management practices.
