Nowadays, it is essential for a multitude of companies to engage in foreign markets. However, the successful management of internationalization processes constantly poses new challenges. By publishing the book series "mir-Edition", the editors attempt to provide academic guidance on the manifold and complex requirements of international business activities. The book series' purpose hence is twofold. Firstly, the "mir-Edition" is to provide empirical assessment and theoretical elaboration on the phenomena which can be observed in international management practice. Secondly, the findings obtained are to be made available in the form of systematised knowledge, explanations, thought-provoking impulses as well as recommendations for further courses of action. For the past 50 years, the international journal "mir - Management International Review", which is read in more than 40 countries, has seen itself committed to promoting an understanding of international management as an applied academic discipline. As of now, the journal only publishes articles in English. The wider range of the existing book series ought to give authors and readers the opportunity to deal with the various problems of international management in a comprehensive and thorough manner. The editorial board of the "mir- Edition" was extended in 2008 through the addition of renowned experts from the domain of international management. Yet, the established editors' policy for the "mir-Edition" of presenting innovative work to a critical audience, which support the scientific advancement, has remained unchanged.
Matthias Daub finished his doctorate at ESCP-EAP Europäische Wirtschaftshochschule in Berlin, Chair of International Management and Strategic Management. He now works as a management consultant specializing on topics of strategy, globalization, and technology.
