This tutorial covers the basics of international business strategy. We first discuss the case of Billabong's recent problems, problems shared by many of its competitors such as Quiksilver and Rip Curl. We then think of Billabong's possible options moving forward in the context of international business theories. These include 1) long-term strategic goals, 2) value creation options, 3) basic business strategy (low-cost vs differentiation, 4) the value chain, 5) entry mode strategies, and 6) the four main international strategies. Finally, we conclude with a look at how some companies localize their offerings.
