This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.
This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
Any discussion about change in the business environment usually results in some reference to globalization. In many ways, it has proved to be a positive force. Markets are more efficient and competition has intensified to an extent that no firm can rest easily on its laurels. In addition, wealth imbalance across the world has also been addressed to a point. On the flip side, many people believe that richer nations benefit most from global trade. Erosion of cultural diversity is another issue, while environmental groups also voice concerns. International trading companies have been affected more than most. Their operating environment has greatly increased in its complexity and many established functions associated with international distribution are no longer applicable in their original form.
The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
