Within the context of the global business environment, strategic international human resource (HR) capabilities have become paramount. The chapter attempts to capture empirical and conceptual scholarly work on international strategic management with contextual focus on sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Africa’s complex multilayered culture with varied historical backgrounds has influenced the creation of complex and challenging cultural and institutional business environment. While HRM capabilities are needed to ensure that firms understand and manage the performance of African employees, it is increasingly becoming necessary that the capability to identify and develop talent must encompass developing talent with local and global technical, managerial and leadership skills.
