The New Global Manager

by Melissa Lamson | Available in Paperback, Kindle and Audio

Most managers already know that cultural differences are important when they’re dealing with business partners from other countries. They understand that the current business environment is increasingly global. What today’s managers don’t fully get is that they must learn and use global management skills in every interaction they have.

Managers who buy this book will be able to make sense of common situations that they do not understand. After reading this book they will be able to recognize, assess, react to and solve complex management situations where diverse styles, personalities, and cultures are in play.

The New Global Manager is a daily resource for managers, providing practical tools and frameworks like OAR™ and the 4DCulture Model™, strategies and tips for successfully managing abroad and at home, face-to-face and virtually.

If you are a new manager or a manager with 20 years of experience, this is the comprehensive resource you’ve been waiting for.

Successful US Market Entry: Culture, Strategy, & Practice

by Melissa Lamson | Available in Hardcover and Kindle

Many European companies fail to be successful in the US because they simply don’t understand how the American market works. Perceived similarities between Europeans and Americans often lead to the conclusion “We are the same!” In reality, business processes, decision-making, management-style and especially buying behavior are fundamentally different. Mistaking our common customs and shared history for a similar approach to business shows a lack of cultural awareness that can lead to an unsuccessful go-to-market strategy. Through current research, qualitative interviews with European managers, and a thorough strategy-to-deployment analysis, this book will explore reasons for failure in the US market and propose a step-by-step methodology to guarantee successful market entry!
