Oxford University Press, 1990 - Foreign Language Study - 327 pages
High technology--which accounts for a rapidly growing section of the global workforce--presents a different set of management problems than have usually been encountered by traditional industry. In this book, Von Glinow, Mohrman, and their expert contributors discuss the reasons for this difference and define new organizational forms for global high technology management. Propounding a revolutionary approach to high technology management issues, they explore management teams, high velocity environments, and high technology marketing, as well as human resource considerations, including team interdependence, compensation, and culture clash.
