  23. 23. Conclusion of the expatriate situation<br />Most organizations invest a lot in their international adventures and expatriates, but they do not manage these investments well. Mostly, they let exist unsatisfactorily but solvable situations. <br />The result is that expatriation becomes unnecessary expensive, so that investments in expats are underutilized. About 70% of the assignments for expats fail, they have not achieved their intended targets or are not able to achieve intended returns on investments.<br />This underutilization can be prevented, and an increase in returns of investments can be easily achieved.<br />Different Processes<br /><ul><li>Arrangement distinction
