Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – “Team-based organizing” is likely to become synonymous with global organizations in the future. Organizing work in teams has become the modus operandi in multinational organizations, but team-based structures could over time come to replace hierarchical organizational structures. Moreover, organizational boundaries will become fluid or dissolve completely due to the temporal and spatial nature of global teams; this globally-based activity will be spanning national, cultural and linguistic boundaries. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
