Book Description

This book addresses two important areas of concern for managers and management researchers. What are the management challenges involved in the acquisition of a foreign subsidiary? Why do companies pursue a strategy of growth through acquisition when the evidence shows performance is disappointing? In addition to addressing these questions, the authors examine both the acquisitions of foreign companies in the UK and the 'acquirers' themselves. They discuss the theoretical background to the debate over the significance of national management practices as opposed to international norms of practice shaped by global forces transcending national boundaries. They then compare and contrast the management practices of the five countries from which the acquirers covered in this book originate: the UK, the USA, Japan, France, and Germany. The authors' research indicates that while considerable convergence is taking place on many dimensions of management practice, distinct national management styles still exist among acquiring companies. The findings also show that although some policies are generally associated with better post-acquisition performance across the board, no one national approach is more successful than another, so long as it is implemented with confidence, determination, and consistency. Failure tends to follow from a lack of these qualities, rather than from having the 'wrong' management style.

    4.5 starsThanks to EUROBOOK and my winning this book, I was able to get an advanced look into John Child David Faulkner Robert Pitkethly's newest book The Management Of International Acquisitions. Having been very much spooked by his The Management Of International Acquisitions, I was quite happy to once again enter the world of "spookdom" and read this story. Teenagers are quite impressionable. They often believe a lot of things and try to grab onto concepts and ideas that at times seems quite out of the norm. They often make ready partners, easily led, and make decisions that oftenti.

    A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries. Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read. You don't know it yet, but it's likely you need this book.

    I know a lot of us were expecting The Management Of International Acquisitions to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".
