2. Organizing for Global Business Activities

a. Selecting a Global Company Structure

• Analyze different global business entry modes that a company might select when planning international business activities. Choose between exporting, turnkey projects, management contracting, licensing, franchising, contract manufacturing, joint venture, and wholly-owned subsidiaries. (In general, exporting has less risk than some of the other entry modes. The product or service, as well as the economic, social-cultural, and political-legal environment of the country, will influence an organization’s entry mode.)

• Discuss the extent to which the organization will use centralization and decentralization. (Centralized organizations tend to offer standardized products or services with decisions made in upper levels of the organization. In contrast, decentralized organizations usually involve products or services that need to be adapted to various geographic, economic, social-cultural, and political-legal influences.)
