Strategic Management: Formulation and Implementation

Organizational Factors In Globalization

Organizational factors can support or undercut a business's attempt to globalize. Four factors affect the ability of an organization to develop and implement global strategy: organization structure, management processes, people, and culture. Each of these aspects of organization operates powerfully in different ways.
