Skills and capabilities required of the manager in a multinational company
by Paraschos Maniatis
International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 9, No. 1, 1999

Abstract: Managers in multinational companies have to deal with the same problems as the manager in the home country and many more. First, they have to adapt to a new country's language and culture, and learn how to fit in with the people. Second, they need to learn the country's laws concerning ownership, taxes, and banking. Third, they have to be very careful in the way they train the workers, so as not to be too assertive. If the manager moves too fast, the workers may resent it and consider the approach imperialist. So the manager has many things to deal with, and the success of the business depends on how the manager handles them.
