Vorwort von Peter Tufano, Dean Said Business School, University of Oxford:
„Joshi and Klein navigate between different points of view, discuss new technologies, new cultural mind-sets, new organizational forms, and economies on the rise - China, India, Africa, and Australia. They discuss threats to local businesses, changes to the way we will work, how we manufacture products, take care of our health, move from place to place, and more. Surely, some of these predictions will take place sooner, and others later, and some not at all - perhaps taken over by innovations yet to be conceived.
Throughout all of this, I go back to the program that brought Joshi and Klein together - a program designed to help us learn how to better manage and lead. How will we manage the technologies that can either improve our lives or lead us to destructions? How will we lead people and organizations through this more complicated global world? What skills, capabilities, and attitudes will serve leaders ell? How will business, government and civil society work together constructively? While innovation may drive continued prosperity, how do we ensure that the decentralized adoption of new technologies doesn’t permit unscrupulous uses that impose costs and externalities on us all? Posing the right questions is the first step to answering them. Oxford has always stood for independent and critical thinking, but the world demands thought and action. Global Business not only enhances our ability to understand the world, but also to help leaders chart the course to our continued collective well-being.“
The book tackles the discussion of the impact of globalization drawing on conversations with academics, practitioners, and practical thinkers around the world. The concepts are timely with topics being well written in a readable style. It is a balanced mix of academic thinking and practical experience at a time when questions on globalisation are being raised at the highest levels in many countries.

Driving the growth of Global Business: Emerging Economies
Fortunes of emerging economies and developed economies are interlocked. One cannot function well without the other. Together they move the wheels of the global economy. The role of emerging markets is changing in the 21st century from the traditional provider of low-cost labour intensive goods to a growth engine of the global world. These emerging economies are growing at double the rate of advanced economies because of technology and global connectivity. Traditionally they have been big exporters of commodities and raw materials to the rest of the world. The export of commodities has contributed significantly to the development of industrial and physical infrastructure in many countries around the world. Emerging markets, on the other hand, are also lucrative markets and an important source of growth for many international companies as they export their products or increase their presence in these markets by opening subsidiaries or through joint venture mechanisms. Today these markets are coming into their own, moving from sole source exporters feeding the world’s growth to increasingly significant normative economic members of the global family.
Globalisation has increasingly been under the microscope as evidenced by Brexit and Donald Trump’s election victory. There are active international discussions and a much touted ideological viewpoints presenting the option that reversal of globalisation and return to protectionism and isolationism will cure the world’s ills. In the midst of the growing prominence of international interconnectivity and contradicting attention attained by skewed misinformation about global impact, this book present as a straight forward readable commentary on mega trends in globalisation by focusing on its history, its present, and its future.
The book tackles the discussion of the impact of globalization drawing on conversations with academics, practitioners, and practical thinkers around the world. The concepts are timely with topics being well written in a readable style. It is a balanced mix of academic thinking and practical experience at a time when questions on globalisation are being raised at the highest levels in many countries. The choice of content is appropriate and addresses primary issues in international business such as transitional leadership, cultural integration, changes in work, and inclusive capitalism. The book details mega trends such as technology, automation, global connectivity, societal impact, cultural inclusivity, nationalism, and populism’s impact not only worldwide but also on local communities. Some material has already received success as source material in the Oxford Advanced Management and Leadership Program at the Saïd Business School of which both authors are alumni.
The narrative focuses on the history of globalization, what it looks like today, and what the future will hold. The book is very readable and a valuable contribution to the topic of globalization. It is well suited for a wide audience including pre-academic and academic students, practitioners, and the general public anywhere on the globe.
