This book discusses the issues and challenges of organizing and managing in the context of a globalized world. It provides insights and perspectives on the realities of organization in a world where governance structures, organizational processes, management practices and employment relations are in a vortex of transformation. It analyzes the political, economic, sociological, cultural, institutional and legal factors that shape these realities.

Globalization has thrown up fundamental questions on the identity, social values, national and local culture and history and even the future identity of societies. Managing and organizing a diverse organization in these times is, thus, a subject worth studying; Organizing and Managing in the Era of Globalization is an answer to this quest.

This book will be useful for students and professionals of organizational design, organizational change and international management. Researchers in the fields of organization and management as well as globalization will also find it of immense value.
