What is Globalization?
• 'Globalization means when your e-mail account is full
with spam from countries you've never heard of...'
"Before this Global Warming, I never knew what
grass was."
The Definition of Globalisation
• Globalization - the 'big idea' of the late twentieth century lacks precise definition. More than this, it is in danger of
becoming, if it has not already become, the cliché of our
• Nonetheless, the term globalization captures elements of a
widespread perception that there is a broadening, deepening
and speeding up of world-wide interconnectedness in all
aspects of life, from the cultural to the criminal, the financial
to the environmental.
• At issue appears to be 'a global shift'; that is, a world being
moulded, by economic and technological forces, into a shared
economic and political arena.
The Definition of Globalisation
• Globalization can usefully be conceived as a
process (or set of processes) which embodies
a transformation in the spatial organization of
social relations and transactions, generating
transcontinental or interregional flows and
networks of activity, interaction and power
The Definition of Globalisation
Globalisation can be defined as the
intensification of world-wide social
relations which link distant localities in
such a way that local happenings are
shaped by events occurring many miles
away and vice versa. (Anthony Giddens,
The Definition of Globalisation
Globalisation refers to all those
processes by which the peoples of
the world are incorporated into a
single world society, global society.
(Martin Albrow, 1990)
The Definition of Globalisation
• The world is becoming a global shopping mall in
which ideas and products are available
everywhere at the same time. (Rosabeth Moss
Kanter 1995)
• Globalisation is what we in the Third World have
for several centuries called colonisation. (Martin
Khor 1995)
The Definition of Globalisation
Globalisation refers to the process
whereby social relations acquire
relatively distanceless and borderless
qualities, so that human lives are
increasingly played out in the world as
a single place. (Jan Aart Scholte, 1997)

Perubahan ekonomi dan teknologi; Ketersediaan
dan kualitas angkatan kerja; Pertumbuhan angkatan
kerja tidak tetap; Persoalan demografi;
Penyeimbangan pekerjaan/keluarga; Penyusunan
ulang organisasional dan merger/akuisisi

terisolasi. Tidak ada organisasi yang boleh
mengambil sikap tidak perduli terhadap apa yang
terjadi dalam lingkungan dimana ia bergerak

keterampilan mengelola orang. Harus mampu
bekerja dengan orang dari budaya yang berbeda,
seperti :pada saat ditugaskan ditempat lain; di
negara sendiri (memahami budaya, gaya
manajemen, memodifikasi)

• Expatriates are PCNs from the parent country operations,
TCNs transferred to either HQ or another subsidiary, and
