Building Organizational Leadership Capacity For Emerging Markets
Why do some firms compete successfully in the world marketplace and others lose or fail to gain a global advantage? Some analysts argue that strategy is the key: The winners are the ones with the right game plans. However, in order to develop effective business strategies for operating in emerging markets, it is critical to consider with care “who” develops these strategies—in other words, it is vital to “get the right people with the right skills” to “formulate and implement strategy. Indeed, recent research has started to demonstrate how companies can create an enduring competitive advantage by effectively leveraging their people and company culture. In this course, we explore in depth the question: “What are the skills and competencies that global leaders need in order to design and implement strategies in emerging markets?” Before addressing the skills critical for success in global leadership in emerging markets, it is first necessary to delineate the definition of the term “emerging markets.”
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to;
- Locate, synthesize and interpret information on Emerging markets
- Determine how the national environment (economic, political, social and resource-endowment) conditions the strategies and operations of organisations
- Evaluate and interpret new information and theory, and engage in problem solving, thereby demonstrating a capacity to think clearly.
