Abstract

This chapter explores the reality of the modern workplace: the demand for global citizens well-exceeds the supply, and while a manager in the 21st century must increasingly be a global citizen manager, this goal is seldom attained. The skills can be learned, but training has not been broadly implemented in schools or businesses, and typically considered the purview solely of study abroad programs or foreign assignments. The chapter presents some key tools on the technology roadmap for use in educating global citizens and training the 21st century manager.
