Growing Beyond Borders, Minimising Risks
28 November, 2011 | (01 hr)
One of the puzzles of the sluggish global economy today is why companies aren't investing more. They certainly seem to have good reasons to: corporate coffers are full, interest rates are low, and a slack economy inevitably offers bargains. Yet many companies seem to be holding back.
Growing across borders can be expensive, risky and dangerous if not well-researched and planned. Knowing how to adapt your products and services to local cultures and customers makes the difference between winning and withdrawing. Many factors are involved to ensure success, including ensuring your organisation's capabilities align with those required to do international business. Another is having the right global mindset inside the organization to allow it to bring learning and innovation inside from other markets.
