9780071467520: Designed to Win: Strategies for Building a Thriving Global Business

The most successful business organizations are those that combine stability, speed and maneuverability. These companies are uniquely equipped to navigate the complexities of global supply chains, an array of often baffling cultural differences, complex international regulations, geopolitical uncertainty, and the vagaries of the capital markets. But these companies are only as good as the officers who command them-and the most successful leaders are those best able to manage and optimize their global risk. They possess a singular skill set that includes, among other things, a talent for international diplomacy.

Product Description:

An exclusive roadmap for steering your company's global expansion to success

Today's business leaders face more uncertainty, more risk and more complexity. The strength of the global marketplace combined with formidable competition from new market entrants and regional economies is challenging traditional business and operating principles. Global executives must adapt swiftly to fundamental shifts in marketing, research and development, supply chain, people management and growth strategies or face extinction. In this environment, leaders must design a sustainable business model, one that is agile, responsive and capable of generating value to an increasingly disaggregated customer base.
