To address the possible issues inherent in this shift, the following research questions are to be addressed:
1. What, realistically, will be the risk of assigning female staff persons to pivotal roles in an organization's global effort?
2. Where exactly does the female executive fit in the global endeavor, considering that sometimes perceptions found in the global environment may pose risk to the potential success of an organization?
