Many public and nonprofit managers and leaders are seeking innovative solutions to minimize the costs of operations while providing quality public services. One way to do this is through contracting services such as information technology, billing, and so forth. Organizations operating globally must ensure that managers and leaders continuously hone communication and leadership skills to work effectively with different cultures. Leaders involved in domestic contracting must also learn new skills in order to achieve desired results from outside entities. Although leaders in government organizations do not contract as much internationally as for-profit organizations, public and nonprofit organizations are also affected by the increasingly diverse populations surrounding their organizations and the availability of information on how others in the world govern.

In this Discussion, you analyze various implications that contracting and globalization have on public and/or nonprofit leaders.

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources. Consider how globalization influences effective leadership. Think about competitive advantages and barriers associated with globalization.

1. Write a description of at least three implications of contracting for public and/or nonprofit managers and leaders.

2. Then analyze the implications of globalization for public and/or nonprofit managers and leaders.
