Abstract

Previous research on the expatriate experience has identified several unique individual and organisational factors that influence success or failure on expatriate assignments. Adopting a performance theory perspective, we propose that these and other factors affect expatriate success through their impact on assignment self-efficacy and motivation. We present a new process model and several propositions to study success on expatriate assignments.
