Ariane Berthoin Antal - Knowledge of Returned Expatriates

Innovation and Organization - Publications :
"International managers are a group I am particularly interested in. After having explored the theoretical dimensions of the topic with Kathrin Boehling in 1998, I embarked on a fascinating empirical project with two interns from the ¬Department of Policy and Organization Studies at Tilburg University in 1999. Ilse Stroo and Mieke Willems worked with me to interview returned expatriates in two German multinationals. We were struck by the wide the range of types of knowledge that these international managers generate abroad, and by the limited use to which it is put on their return. The results suggest that the entire process of expatriation needs to be managed much more strategically, and one of the outcomes of the study is a fuller model of the expatriation cycle that can underpin organizational learning."
