Lesson #10 Assignment: FINAL PROJECT This project requires research, imagination, and logic in applying the content of this course and book. Create an imaginary company that you have been operating in the domestic arena for some time. You have decided its time to go international. 1. Describe your company and its operations, relative size, and so forth. Give reasons for your decision to go international. 2. Decide on an appropriate country in which to operate, and give your rationale for this choice. 3. State your planned entry strategy, and give your reasons for this strategy. 4. Describe the environment in which you will operate and the critical operational factors that you must consider and how they will affect your company. 5. Give a cultural profile of the local area in which you will be operating. What are the workers going to be like? What kind of reception do you anticipate from local governments, suppliers, distributors, and so on? 6. Draw up an organization chart showing the company and its overseas operations, and describe why you have chosen this structure. 7. Decide on the staffing policy you will use for top-managers, and give your rationale for this policy. 8. Describe the kinds of leadership and motivational systems you think would be most effective in this environment, focusing on factors affecting behavior in the workplace. Integrate any findings regarding motivation or work attitudes and behaviors. Decide on the type of approach to motivation you would take and the kinds of incentive and reward systems you would set up as manager of a subsidiary in that country. Then decide what type of leadership style and process you would use. 9. Discuss the kinds of communication problems your managers face in the host-country working environment. How should they prepare for and deal with them? 10. Explain any special control issues that concern you for this overseas operation. How do you plan to deal with them? 11. Identify the concerns of the host country and the local community regarding your operations there.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
