This book is about understanding global business contexts, threats and opportunities, the drivers and nature of globalization, multilateral organizations, and the political, economic, social, technological, and legal differences that regions and countries exhibit. This digital book addresses how businesses devise strategies that work internationally, in different parts of the globe, plan entry strategies for new markets, and decide on alliances, evolution and growth. To compete globally, businesses also need to work hard at the detail of managing – designing structure and organization, devising sourcing and supply chain arrangements, establishing information systems that perform globally, and managing international human resources.
