Abstract:

Is the United States producing the leaders it will need in the 21st century? What can be done to take advantage of the opportunities created by the shifting demographics of the workforce and the skills and interests of these new workers to produce competent international leadership in U.S. organizations? To answer these questions, the authors interviewed representatives of internationally oriented organizations, queried experts who could provide insights into the answers to these questions, and reviewed recent literature on this topic. In conclusion, the book recommends that U.S. organizations that have an international reach or that are involved in preparing individuals for careers that involve an international component take the following actions: - Encourage the development of portfolio careers. - Develop personnel practices to support portfolio careers. - Internationalize university curricula. Also available on the internet via WWW in PDF format.
