For this search, I would start at the Business LibGuide, and select the articles tab. This will give you a list of the best places to search for the information.

Choose ABI/Inform Complete and search "Organizational behavior" AND "global environment". Be sure to include the quotation marks; they help to focus the results. I limited the results to full text (the box under the search box). I also used the right side toolbar on the results page to limit to the last 5 years. This left me with 27 results including

Emergence : Complexity and Organization, 11(1), 1-18. Retrieved from     From the abstract: "However the complexity that arises from a continually changing global environment highlights the need for knowledge management to move in new directions both in practice and theory."

I also checked Business Source Complete, the second database listed in the Business LibGuide. Here I searched "organizational behavior" AND globalization. Limiting my results to full text articles published in the last 5 years left 83 articles including

  • Groysberg, B., & Slind, M. (2012). Leadership Is a Conversation. Harvard Business Review, 90(6), 76-84.

  • Sicoli, G. (2012). Evolving dynamics in the process of business internationalization. Global Journal Of Business Research, 6(2), 117-124. Retrieved from     From the abstract: "Over the past century the global economic scene has undergone numerous rapid and ongoing transformations.
