World Without Borders

Synopsis
Examines the development of international business, and follows the structural and human resource implications for companies moving through the stages of international development. Focuses on the issues surrounding the concept of ‘global’, arguing that it is more of a strategic business concept than a geographical one. Enables companies to identify their current stage of development, define the next stage, examine the human resource implications of that growth and assess the impact of IT on future strategy. Interviewees include Professor Nancy Adler (McGill University, Canada), Professor Gordon Hewitt (Manchester Business School), James Ross (Chief Executive, Cable & Wireless).

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
