The Challenge of Global Mindset Development for Managers: Towards a New Framework for Empirical Tool Building
MetadataShow full item record
The forces of market, government, cost and competition are impacting organisations to rethink their managerial 'mindset' orientations. Understanding and reformulating the global economic and managerial rules have become one of the most relevant managerial responsibilities in organisations today. Globalisation requires managers not only to consider strategic and organisational issues, but also to reorient their values, goals and belief systems. The ideology of economic reform associated with globalisation, can only be of learning value if the alignment of the national, organisational and individual mind frames is ensured.This paper provides a generic framework of the logic of globalisation driving the alignment of the national, organisation and individual level mind frames. A conceptual model explaining the symbiotic macro (national), meso (organisational) and micro (individual) level inter-relationships is presented and supported by the underpinnings of various postulated hypotheses. The theoretical model integrates the key variables of a global managerial mindset and establishes a framework for empirical testing across diverse cultures and contexts.
