Project 4: Simulation as a Tool for Strategic Decision Makingâ€”Part 2 Step 1: Discuss Entry Strategy
As you prepare to choose a new strategyâ€”a global strategyâ€”to direct your clientâ€™s business decisions, it will be useful to think critically about international strategies, modes of entry, and globalizing the management model.
Before you and your teammates settle on a strategy, Jillian Best has asked you to meet and discuss the various factors that influence an entry strategy.
Based on your reading, research, and analysis, respond to the two discussion questions below:
Discussion Topic 1: What are the factors that influence an organizationâ€™s choice of entry mode in a country? Discuss how the chosen mode fits with an organization’s goals and objectives.
Discussion Topic 2: What are the country factors that influence an organizationâ€™s decision to enter that country? What is the impact of the culture and geography on the organizationâ€™s value-chain activities being relocated to the country?
Review the MBA Discussion Guidelines for instructions on participation in discussions. Also, abide by the following guidelines:
- The titles of your main postings should indicate the discussion topic number (e.g., #1, #2).
- Respond to a minimum of two postings from your classmates before the end of Week 7.
- In your discussions, cite examples when you describe theories from your reading and research. You may use examples from your organization or industry, current or recent newsmakers, or other reliable sources.
