I. (Paragraph 1) Based on the country you are analyzing for your Global Plan, suggest OBJECTIVES and an ORGANIZATIONAL FRAMEWORK for global business operations, with respect to trade. Consider information related to the following:
1. STRATEGIC PLANNING
Develop strategic objectives that communicate major goals related to:
product (or service) offerings,
target market and customer benefits,
financial aims (market share, return on investment),
employee satisfaction, and
(Strategic goals are commonly stated in a manner that can be measured objectively, such as to provide households with clean drinking water at a moderate price.)
2. ENTRY MODES
Analyze different global business entry modes that a company might select when planning international business activities. Compare the benefits, costs, and risks associated with using exporting, turnkey projects, management contracting, licensing, franchising, contract manufacturing, joint venture, and wholly-owned subsidiaries. (In general, exporting has less risk than some of the other entry modes. The product or service, as well as the economic, social-cultural, and political-legal environment of the country, will influence an organizations entry mode.)
3. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
Discuss the extent to which the organization will use centralization and decentralization. (Centralized organizations tend to offer standardized products or services with decisions made in upper levels of the organization. In contrast, decentralized organizations usually involve products or services that need to be adapted to various geographic, economic, social-cultural, and political-legal influences.)
4. STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
Identify local companies of the country or international companies operating in the country that could be a business partner. These strategic alliances may be suppliers, distributors, sales representatives, or consultants. (For example, a bottled water company might reach an agreement to transport and sell its product through the existing distribution system or a soft drink company.)
II. (Paragraph 2) Based on the country you are analyzing for your Global Plan, project start-up costs and funding sources for international operations. Consider information related to the following:
1. ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT
Discuss the influence of the countrys infrastructure and economic conditions (inflation, currency exchange rate, interest rates, unemployment, personal income) on startup costs and the financial potential for this business enterprise.
2. START-UP COSTS
Identify expenses (and estimated amounts) that would be necessary when starting this global business enterprise. (Be sure to consider equipment, buildings, vehicles, infrastructure improvements, training costs, consultants, legal fees, and licenses.)
3. FINANCING SOURCES
Compare the availability and costs associated with different sources for funding this global business enterprise. (Large companies may sell stock, issue bonds, and obtain loans. Smaller organizations might make use of personal investors, small business loans, venture capital sources, or government-guaranteed loans.)
