Assignment 5 – week 7

Given that you are rolling your services out in a foreign country, there will be a need to learn from other companies that are currently operating overseas. In

particular, if a company can learn from others operating in the same region or location where they wish to operate, this can be quite helpful. What others have done to

be effective and recognized by others can be viewed by their use of certain business practices. If we look at what others are doing and form a benchmark of key

practices and procedures, we can learn from others as to what may work or not work in certain businesses, locations, situations, and services (and production

manufacturing). Thus, this leads us to a very important area of research for this week?s assignment.

1. Why is it important to consider benchmarking and best practices to determine the most cost effective and efficient means to operate in a country?
2. What if the regional traditional partners are required or encouraged by local governments but do not satisfy your quality standards?
3. Students should use reference material from course readings and outside sources when needed to strengthen your argument.

This course will offer the student a highly interactive virtual classroom. Each week’s lesson will have a course announcement, assigned readings and assignments based

on either course readings or an internet-based project. The course will provide the student with the necessary knowledge to understand basic principles of global

management and how culture affects companies and organizations in order to better appreciate and comprehend world events and motivations of the numerous key players

involved with shifts in different economic environments and organizational structures. Students are expected to research course concepts and be able to discuss current

events in relationship to course concepts.
Since the student is expected to fully participate in discussions and interact with the instructor and other students, reading assignments and assigned projects should

be completed in a timely manner.
