Write a two- to three-page analysis using the Case Study on pages 325-327 of your textbook, “Expatriate Management at AstraZeneca.”
Your analysis should address the following questions:
1. Critically analyze AstraZeneca’s expatriate management practices.
2. According to the 2007 Expatriate Work/Life Balance Survey, 65% of expats report feeling the strain of managing the demands of work and home, leading to more
anxieties at home and at the workplace. What steps can an organization take to mitigate this?
3. What decisions related to expatriates could organizations take to maximize the benefits to the company despite ongoing economic recessions? Do you think a company
that paid more careful attention to selection could further boost their chances of success?
