Research Topic

The value to organisations of International Assignment/expatriate (IA) programmes.

Research Issue

Organisations predominantly remain incapable of demonstrating the value of their IA programmes. They are based on a belief-system and the management of these programmes is generally through cost not value. I am interested in what the value is, how it is created and where it sits, and hence ultimately how we can help organisations evaluate and increase the positive impact of IAs.
