Globalization is not a complete state of affairs: it is not a static and finished status quo. On the contrary, it is subject to continuous transformation and restructuring. At the same time, Globalization is not a timeless, unhistorical and automatically homogenizing phenomenon. Globalization Dynamic is unfolding through a complex process by which each socioeconomic part is producing, but also is being produced by, the Globalizing systemic whole. In practice, every attempt of scientific understanding, interpretation and prediction of the separate socioeconomic dynamics and developments is becoming increasingly infertile and disorientating, insofar as the rigid analytic division between the National and the Inter-national is being precipitated: Globalization is a complex dialectic and evolutionary phe-nomenon. From these it follows that the study of Globalization through the examination of the synthesizing and co-evolving incorporation of separate socioeconomic structures (social, economic and sectoral) and corporate subsystems in terms of strategy, technology and management (stra.tech.man triangle) constitutes a new approach for the study of the globalization process.
