Biculturals - people who have internalized more than one cultural profile - are a significant but underexplored result of globalization. This new demographic raises a number of questions for international management. Results of my preliminary research indicate that biculturals have more pronounced cross-cultural skills than monoculturals, and that there may be differences in the skills related to cross-cultural effectiveness based on the way in which people have developed (or experience) their biculturalism. Concurrently, we have come to recognize that the construct of biculturalism is complex and multidimensional and that there may be many different ways of being bicultural. The long term goal of this new stream of research is to understand this demographic and their potentially unique skills. The findings will be useful not only to bicultural individuals  (employees), but to organizations which may then not only recognize them as an invaluable assets but also improve their capacity to better utilize and leverage their unique skill sets and attributes .
