How to Go Global — Lessons from World’s Leading Corporations

With barriers between countries rapidly collapsing, globalisation is less a choice for business and more a compulsion. In smooth, fast-paced style, The Global CEO outlines the blueprint for Indian companies wanting to go global.

The book is packed with cutting-edge ideas and lessons from numerous global companies across the world, that highlight practical dimensions of globalization. Find out:

  • Does your company have global capabilities?

  • Global mindset, key attributes of a global manager

  • Global value chain configuration — exploiting comparative and strategic advantages

  • Global strategic alliances — types and structures; how to make them work

  • Global standardization, local customization — how to balance the two

  • How to coordinate a worldwide network of capabilities and facilities; global coordination mechanisms

  • Global marketing strategies and customer relationship management

  • New opportunities of globalization created by information technology and the Internet

  • Management styles and best practices of global companies

  • Why globalization efforts fail.

Brief examples at the end of each chapter illustrate the different key issues involved in globalization. The second part of the book is devoted exclusively to comprehensive cases on how comapanies which are recognised global entities operate and how they got to be that way.
