Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

This research paper concentrates on a range of entry options available to emerging market companies who intend to expand their global reach by seeking strategic assets in developed countries. The results reveal that the emerging market investor’s appetite for amassing strategic assets, such as Western brands and technologies, materially influences their location strategy, their chosen mode of ownership, and their investment intensity but not their timing of entry.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives, strategists, 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.
