  • Case studies …
    Many cases studies to illustrate the theoretical part of the course … easy … we talk about it
    Cases studies … prepared home … analyzed in class … debated …
    YOU are working ! I’m just asking questions … 
    Case study resolution as an open question at the final exam …
    … together (depending of the class-size) 
    8-11
  • Points ?
    • 33% Participation ( be present)
    • 33% Case content (written)
    • 33% Case Defense & explanations
    Possibility to be exempted from the final exam … if not a final case prepared during the year to defend … probably together … and some articles to defend or explain.
    8-12
  • Case study ?
    The case method is a teaching approach that consists in presenting the students with a case, putting them in the role of a decision maker facing a problem (Hammond 1976).
    Case studies recount real life business or management situations that present business executives with a dilemma or uncertain outcome. The case describes the scenario in the context of the events, people and factors that influence it and enables students to identify closely with those involved
    Harvard method since its foundation …
    8-13
  • What is a strategy case ?
    A strategic – management case describe an organization’s external and internal conditions and raises issues concerning the firm’s vision/mission, strategies, objectives and policies.
    Most of information in a case study are established facts, but some information's may be opinions, judgments, and beliefs.
    One reaction frequently heard is “I don’t have enough information”. In reality, strategists never have enough information because some information is not available, and some is too costly – William GLUECK
    8-14
  • Strategy case and Socratic method
    Inquiry & debate between individuals
    Asking & answering questions
     Stimulate rational thinking
     Illuminate ideas
    Dialectical method  oppositional discussion defense <-> defense
     inference
    Contradiction is the rule
    8-15
  • What is a case ? How to present it ?
    6 “needs” when preparing a case …
    Need for practicality – Be practical !
    Need for justification – Not a science … explain
    Need for realism – Be realistic !
    Need for specificity – What, why, when, how, where & who ?
    Need for originality – Be original !
    Need to contribute – Group & team work …
    8-16
  • What is a case ? How to present it ?
    Presenting a case for Class discussion :
    You need to read the case before class (you’d better !)
    Makes notes regarding the organization’s external opportunities/threats and internal strengths/weaknesses
    Perform requested analysis … together if possible
    Come to class to defend your recommendations … speak !!!!!
    Students do most of the talking …
    Professor facilitates discussions by asking questions & encouraging students interaction regarding ideas, analyses and recommendations :

    What is Porter’s Diamond?
    Porter’s Diamondsuggests that there are inherent reasons why some nations are more competitive than others, and why some industries within nations are more competitive than others.
  • Porter’s Diamond
    Entering a new market means considerable disadvantages (WM in Germany vs China)
    Internationalization strategy must be based on strong, substantial & sustainable competitive advantage.
    Local source of advantages may not be imitated easily.
    Countries / regions have developed some specific & enduring competitive advantage.
    Porter’s Diamond helps explain why some nations tend to produce firms with sustained competitive advantages in some industries more than others.
    4 interacting determinants of home advantages.

    industries
  • Porter’s diamond
    Used by Gov. to increase their local competitiveness
    Rivalry CAN be positive -> policies to encourage competition rather than protecting home-based industries.
    Gives room to Gov for stimulating policies :
    Can foster local industries with norms creating more sophisticated demands …
    Encouraging cooperation between suppliers and buyers on a domestic level.

    Cluster policy at regional & E.C. level.
    8-44
  • Porter’s diamond
    What for individual companies ?
    To identify the extent to which it can build on home-based advantage to create competitive advantage on a global front.
    To distinguish among the general national advantages, their company’s individual sources of advantage.
    Ex. : Dutch brewing companies, Benetton, …

    What is Global Sourcing?
    Global sourcingrefers to purchasing services and components from the most appropriate suppliers around the world regardless of their location.
  • Global sourcing ?
    International companies can find advantages with specific configurations of their value network ...
    Advantages : SKILLS – RESSOURCES – COSTS
    2 ways of exploiting this efficiency :
    FDI - FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT
    GLOBAL SOURCING : purchasing services and components from the most appropriate suppliers around the world, regardless of their location.

    Locational Advantages of Global Sourcing
    Cost advantages
    Unique capabilities
    National characteristics
  • Locational advantages
    Cost advantages : labor, transportation, communication cost or tax incentive, …
    Unique capabilities : local market, know-how, … Not only for local capabilities, but also for local strategies …
    National Characteristics : can enable organizations to develop differentiated products for different segments
    8-49
  • Locational advantage
    Can lead to complex organizational structure …

    Low
    Adapted from ME PORTER
    Changing pattern of international competition
    Dispersed
    Concentrated
    Configuration of activities
  • 4 international strategies – N° 1
    SIMPLE EXPORT ?
    Concentration of activities in one country (origin)
    Coordination of marketing for exported products (independent sales agents) ?
    Pricing, packaging, distribution & branding policies ?
    Strategy chosen by organization with a strong locational advantage (Porter’s Diamond) :
    Managerial capabilities to coordinate ?
    Little value to coordinate ?
    8-55
  • 4 international strategies – N° 2
    MULTIDOMESTIC ?
    Loosely coordinated internationally
    Some activities overseas (manufacturing, R&D, …)
    Goods & services, markets “treated” independently with eventually local adaptations (diversification of portfolio).
    Appropriate strategy when few economy of scale and benefit to adapt to local needs.
    Professional services where local relationships are critical.
    8-56
  • 4 international strategies – N°3
    COMPLEX EXPORT ?
    Most activities located in one single country
    Economy of scale (manufacturing & R&D)
    Coordinated marketing but local branding and pricing
    Common stage for companies from emerging economies : locational advantages from home country / build a stronger brand & network overseas with a growing organizational maturity
    8-57
  • 4 international strategies – N° 4
    GLOBAL STRATEGY ?
    Most mature international strategy : Highly coordinated activities dispersed geographically around the world
    Extensive use of value network : Geographical location chosen / locational advantage for each activity
    Product development, manufacturing, marketing and headquarters functions may be located in different countries in the world …
    Example : GENERAL MOTORS
    Need to invest in COORDINATION
    Need to develop SKILLS in COORDINATION
    8-58
  • International strategies
    Conclusions :
    Not necessarily 4 distinct strategies …
    Companies will mostly oscillate between those 4 strategies …
    Strategies will be influenced by changes in the internationalization drivers …
    Standardized tastes … -> more complex export or global strategies
    Less economies of scale … -> multidomestic
    8-59
  • Market selection & Entry
    Strong international drivers

    Significant source of competitive advantage

    International strategy selected

    8-60
  • Market selection & Entry
    Not all countries are equally attractive
    Use of standard methodologies of PORTER to analyze a market :
    PESTEL http://www.12manage.com/methods_PEST_analysis_fr.html
    5 Forces http://www.12manage.com/methods_porter_five_forces_fr.html

  • Case to illustrate
    Tatitos(only if rights confirmed)
    For a variety of reasons, including size or maturity of their home market, entrepreneurial firms in emerging markets must go abroad for growth opportunities. While economically sensible, such incursions entail significant challenges, quite distinct from those faced by traditional multinational corporations. How should start-ups internationalize? What are the risks and opportunities?
    8-64
  • 8-65
    Modes of Entry
    Exporting
    Joint ventures and alliances
    Licensing
    Foreign direct investment
  • 8-66
    Exporting
    Advantages
    No need for operational facilities in host country
    Economies of scale
    Internet facilitates exporting opportunities
    Disadvantages
    Lost location advantages
    Dependence on export intermediaries
    Exposure to trade barriers
    Transportation costs
  • 8-67
    Joint Ventures and Alliances
    Advantages
    Shared investment risk
    Complementary resources
    May be required for market entry
    Disadvantages
    Difficult to find good partner
    Relationship management
    Loss of competitive advantage
    Difficult to integrate and coordinate
  • 8-68
    Licensing
    Advantages
    Contractual source of income
    Limited economic and financial exposure
    Disadvantages
    Difficult to identify good partner
    Loss of competitive advantage
    Limited benefits from host nation
  • 8-69
    Foreign Direct Investment
    Advantages
    Full control
    Integration and coordination possible
    Rapid market entry through acquisitions
    Greenfield investments
    Disadvantages
    Substantial investment and commitment
    Acquisitions may create integration/ coordination issues
    Greenfield investments are time consuming and unpredictable
  • 8-70
    Internationalization and Performance
    Inverted U-curve
    Service sector disadvantages
    Internationalisation and product diversity
  • Internationalization and Performance
    Benefit of internationalization is substantial …
    But at certain level of complexity, the cost of this complexity can exceed the benefit of the internationalization …
    Theory and evidence suggest that the process can be considered as an inverted U-curve …
    Moderate level of internationalization … ?
    Experience & commitment may be able to deliver strong performances for highly internationalized firms
    8-71
  • Internationalization and Services
    Some studies have suggested that internationalization may not lead to improved performance for services …
    3 possible reasons for this :
    Some service sectors still restricted locally
    Intangible -> More sensitive to cultural differences -> greater adaptation -> greater cost
    Local presence in services is more important -> less benefit from economies of scale in production
    8-72
  • Internationalization and product diversity
    Internationalization and product diversity … is an important question …
    Product-diversified firms are doing better on internationalization because they have already developed the skills and structures for managing internal diversity …
    Firms with highly diversified and highly internationalized activities face excessive costs …
    Many firms so opt for reducing their product diversity while internationalizing ...
    Example of UNILEVER …
    8-73
  • Role in an international portfolio
    International strategies imply different relationship between subsidiary operations and the head-quarters …
    Subsidiaries may play different roles :
    According to the local level of resources and capabilities …
    The strategic importance of the local environment …
    8-74
  • Subsidiary role in multinational firms

  • Contributors
    With valuable internal resources
    Located in countries lesser strategic
    Can play role in competitive success
    Example : Australian subs of Ericsson played a role of development of specialized system

  • Implementers
    Simply execute strategies developed elsewhere
    May generate surplus financial resources
    Contribute to finance other activities of the group.

    8-81
  • 8-82
    Chapter Summary (1)
    Internationalisation potential in any particular market is determined by four drivers: market, cost, government, and competitors’ strategies.
    Sources of advantage can come from global sourcing through the international value network and national sources of advantage
    The main types of international strategy vary according to extent of coordination and geographical configuration: simple export, complex export, multidomestic, and global
  • 8-83
    Chapter Summary (2)
    Market selection for international entry should be based on attractiveness, multidimensional measures of distance and expectations of competitor retaliation
    Modes of entry into new markets include export, licensing, joint ventures, and foreign direct investment
    Internationalisation has an uncertain relationship to financial performance
  • 8-84
    Key Debate: Global, Local, or Regional?
    Make a list of products and services which are getting more ‘global’ over time.
    Now make a list of products and services which are getting less global.
    How many countries in the world have you visited in your lifetime? How many countries had your parents visited by the same age?

  • When you should not go global ?
    Harvard Business Review – Vol.86 – 12.09
    Even as companies are being told that the future lies in globalization, some are severely punished for their international moves.
    A simple test can help you decide what makes strategic sense for your organization.
    8-86
  • When you should not go global ?
    A lot of companies rush to become more global.
    Many have stumbled in their globalization strategies.

  • Global dominance through theemerging middle segment
    Growth forecasts for the emerging markets in general and the BRIC countries in particular continue to be dazzling.
    Traditionally, multinational companies (MNCs) from North America, Europe and Japan have exploited emerging market growth by targeting their premium segments.
    That strategy is reaching its limits now, forcing MNCs to turn their sights from the premium to the middle segment: consumer and business products with a good basic functionality but without the full range of differentiating features, yet at a highly competitive price.

  • Global dominance through theemerging middle segment
    First of all, the premium segment is rather small and becoming a very crowded place.
    Secondly, the middle segment in emerging markets has massive growth potential, typically accounting for between 60 and 90 % of the addressable local market.
    Combined with the sheer size of the economies of emerging markets, this means that an MNC that aims to be a global leader cannot afford to miss out.
    Thirdly, if local champions in emerging markets are allowed to grow through their dominance of the middle segment there, they will use the skills and resources gained to fund international expansion into the MNCs’ profitable home markets.

  • Global dominance through theemerging middle segment
    In order to succeed in the middle segment in emerging markets, MNCs have to beat local champions at their own game through a fight-focus-simplify strategy.
    “Fight” means linking their international brand power with the go-to-market approaches of the local champions.
    “Focus” means investing selectively in geographies (city clusters or regions) with a potential for market dominance. “Simplify” means going for fully localized products that address local buying criteria instead of “de-engineering” international products.
