Business is becoming more global every day, transcending cultures and generations, crossing borders that used to stand between technologies, markets, and even jobs. This change in the global business environment has resulted in both challenges and opportunities; challenges in terms of managing business and opportunities for creating growth and value, especially in the emerging countries of Asia, Latin America and Africa. But global opportunities also raise global risks and complex issues. As a result ready-made solutions no longer work. Companies are looking for a new breed of manager capable of continuously inventing new ways of doing profitable, responsible business over the long term. How do we rise to such a challenge?
