Globalization has created vast opportunities for international business expansions through trade, manufacturing and services. As new markets are opened, especially in Asia, many corporations have to think international instead of domestic. Just as the internet has totally re-created the concept, structure and functions of information technology and communications, so also did globalization change the nature, structure, modus operandi and approach to international business. Most importantly, globalization has given rise to a new “breed” of organizational global managers and leaders whose skills and competencies go beyond the traditional requirements of functional knowledge to include being able to interact with multi-cultural environments.

The global leader has to know and understands the importance of cultural differences and how they play a vital role in achieving a smooth operation on foreign lands. Business operations are run and operated by people. People are subject to cultural influences, behaviours and values. So to manage these people, one has to know how to manage them across cultural borders. This is Cross-cultural Management.
