GLOBAL BUSINESS PLAN PROJECT

PART 1

Please be sure to utilize this addendum and the GBP examples attached. Make your paper look like these and you’ll be fine

DIRECTIONS: For part 1, you will be handing in one document for modules 2, 3,4,5,6, and part of 10. Please, please review the modules and be sure to complete the “Conduct Research” sections. You are to do the “Conduct Research” sections on your country and company that you have chosen. Remember, you are taking a domestic company to a new country. It does not matter if the company you choose is already in that country. The simulation will be done assuming they are not already there. Cut and paste the web links where you obtain your information and put them in a works cited list at the end of the paper. See the examples attached. They DO NOT have to be MLA or APA format. Rather, cut and paste the web link along with the date. That’s all that’s required.

Compare the benefits, costs, and risks associated with using exporting, turnkey projects, management contracting, licensing, franchising, contract manufacturing, joint venture, and wholly-owned subsidiaries.

4. STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

Identify local companies of the country or international companies operating in the country that could be a business partner. These strategic alliances may be suppliers, distributors, sales representatives, or consultants. (For example, a bottled water company might reach an agreement to transport and sell its product through the existing distribution system or a soft drink company.)
