QUESTION: How will you go about selecting and training a manager working in a subsidiary of your company in one of these countries to work in a leadership position in the U.S.? You may assume the following:
(a) The managers in those countries have not studied, worked, or lived in the U.S.
(b) You have about six months to select and train the candidates.
(c) The expected period of inpatriate assignment is about two years.
Instructions: Your answer should take about one page (double-spaced, one-inch margin, Times New Roman 12-point font). There will be deduction of points for any answer that is shorter than half-page or longer than 1.5 pages.
