Redefining Global Strategy: Crossing Borders in a World Where Differences Still MatterDe (autor) Pankaj Ghemawat
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – October 2007
In this “semiglobalized” world, one-size-fits-all strategies don’t stand a chance. Companies must instead reckon with cross-border differences. Ghemawat shows you how—by providing tools for:
- Assessing the cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic differences between countries at the industry level and deciding which ones merit attention.
- Tracking the implications of particular border-crossing moves for your company’s ability to create value.
- Creating superior performance with strategies optimized for adaptation (adjusting to differences), aggregation (overcoming differences), and arbitrage (exploiting differences), and for compound objectives.
- In-depth examples reveal how companies such as Cemex, Toyota, Procter & Gamble, Tata Consultancy Services, IBM, and GE Healthcare have adroitly managed cross-border differences—as well as how other well-known companies have failed at this challenge.
