Don'tknow how to enter a strategic market? Can't get global alliances aligned? Flyingblind in international meetings? Facing cross-border conflicts? Lost intranslation? Few areprepared for managing across cultures, and blind-spotscan be costly--from lawsuits to lost opportunities. Forged inthe fire of clashing cultures and living on four continents, Dr. Zweifel, former CEO, Columbiaprofessor and award-winning author of bestsellers like Strategy-In-Actionand The Rabbi and the CEO, unpacks the toolbox he developed over three decades of helpingmanagers in 100+ countries produce breakthroughs --a fool-proof system forsuccess across borders.
