Executive search, headhunting, is now one of the archetypal new
knowledge intensive professional services, as well as a labor
market intermediary bound up with globalization. In this book, the
authors examine the key actors in the process of executive search
globalization - leading global firms - and offer an interpretation
of the forces producing the contemporary organizational strategies
of global executive search. The Globalization of Executive Search
documents the forms of institutional work that have legitimated the
role of executive in elite labor markets and created demand for the
services of global firms; this exposes not only the changing
geographies of executive search, but also how executive search has
established itself as a new knowledge intensive professional
service. The authors reveal how the globalization of executive
search is exemplary of the processes by which a range of new
knowledge intensive professional services have come to be globally
recognized, approaching the heart of contemporary capitalism.
