Transfer of American managers to Sweden
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
As today’s companies are growing their international reach, its managers increasingly need to manage teams overseas. The United States and Sweden have extensive trade and as American companies are increasing their involvement in the Swedish market, American managers relocate to Sweden to manage teams and projects. Knowing how to prepare an American manager for this change is crucial for the success of a project, product, and/or company in Sweden. It was found that, even though two cultures might seem similar (in this case, US and Sweden), companies need to prioritize both pre-departure and post-arrival training as well as selection of expatriates with respect to cultural intelligence.
