Abstract:

Why do we need global leaders? The voyage of a pair of blue jeans, from inception to product release, offers a glimpse into the inexorably international--and complex--world of business today: The cotton may be picked from Peruvian or Ugandan fields, shipped to China for finishing, and then sent to Malaysia to be woven into yarn. The yarn goes to Thailand where the fabric is made, and the fabric is cut in Singapore before it is sent to Indonesia for sewing. Labels come from India. Zippers from Hong Kong. Thread from Malaysia. Buttons and rivets from Taiwan. The range of countries and systems involved in this production demonstrates that business in most industries (automotive and electronics, food and pharma) has become inescapably linked across borders. But it's more than mastering geography and culture that makes a leader today a different breed. You must master the complex mindset and competencies needed to lead in today's fully globalized world. No easy task. Enter Angel Cabrera and.
