Abstract

Global managers face challenges, dualities, and paradoxes of mammoth proportions for which structural solutions no longer are effective. Building on the idea of requisite variety, researchers are beginning to conclude that only complex human behavior can match these complex demands of the global environment. Managers need a mindset that enables them to think outside the narrow confines of a single cultural view. This global mindset comprises cognitive complexity, joined with an awareness of the world and a positive orientation toward it, cosmopolitanism.
