We have heard about “the global economy” and the impact on a global scale of decisions made centrally and “globalization” using global methods locally. Both of these terms use the word “global” in the sense of taking something from a central location or headquarters facility and rolling it out globally. But what about taking local best practices and leveraging them to customers and clients globally? In this workshop, we will look at how best practices can emerge locally but are often ignored in a global perspective due to their local origin. Many of these best practices are developed “below the radar” and work very well for a local market; however small changes or adaptations could make them of global significance. We will examine cases of local best practices and they were promoted to improve business performance globally. We will also look at things that can go wrong if this is not done correctly and finally, we will highlight ways that a company can discover and apply these practices.
