These organisations range from large multinational enterprises to small growth businesses and exporting overseas. These organisations need to be aware of the different and changing values and expectations of the international environment. Strategic management of human resources and finance and the application of logistics and technology is crucial in developing international operations. Students are therefore required to apply international business strategies to meet challenges ranging from local to global so that they are aware of and recognise how enterprises can achieve greater competitive advantage in the global market place. 29 Learning outcomes To understand, critically analyse, evaluate and explain: • The operational requirements of different international business strategies. • The costs and benefits of particular international entry and development routes (i.e.: merger, acquisition, Greenfield site development etc.). • The impact of cultural differences on development and strategy adopted by international minded organisations. • The core competencies required to manage a diverse international organisation. • The elements required to provide an environment which promotes innovative practice, analytical insights, critical evaluation and judgement, systematic learning, positive initiatives, adaptability and open mindedness. /home/pptfactory/temp/20100430112405/sponsoring-schemeschoolsubject-areateaching-and-research-group2622.doc
