Abstract Shakespeare's prophetic line from his play King Richard III: “A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a Horse!” has renewed meaning for human resource managers in global organizations. Staffing global organizations (e.g., finding an adequate number of qualified horses) has become significantly more difficult, given the complexity of competing in the global marketplace. Daniel Hanyzewski, Nike Inc.’s global staffing director, laments that Nike could grow its business significantly more if it could effectively staff global management positions. Globalization of business complicates the staffing in emerging markets. Where can one find managers who have experience in emerging markets, aren’t too prohibitive from a cost standpoint, and at the same time are willing to relocate their families to the emerging markets for 20–25 years?
