Global merchandise trade across borders is around $20 trillion per year, and service trade is around $6 trillion per year. Global Chamber and Coaching Professors have teamed up to offer 6 Programs to help you gain a great slice of this opportunity.
- How do you evaluate the opportunity, and what do you do next?
- For your business, which are the best countries?
- How should you expand? What should your plan be?
- What barriers will you encounter and how do you overcome them?
- What specific international issues and opportunities will you face?
Direct experience and MBA level materials will be shared in the Global Growth Best Practices (GGBP) Series. GGBP was specifically designed to meet the needs of Global Chamber members and to provide formalized guidance in the selection, identification, reach and management of international markets.
The format of the meetings provides strong interaction between all participants, and we'll move forward learning from each other and from the facilitator. The visiting speakers address specific topics.
GGBP consists of the six 4-week programs, with different objectives and different focus for each. The online meetings will be once a week, 1.5 hours per meeting, with ‘full access” participation by each attendee. Participants will receive a multi-slide Power Point summary of each meeting, relevant participation, guidance, answers, and useful information for their businesses.
The 6 programs divided into the following:
Program 1. Five Options to Access Foreign Markets and the EFE Methods to Assess
While each 4-week module will be accessed independently, it is suggested that the modules be taken in the existing sequence, with continuity, to best benefit from each prior learning tools for the next program learning.
At the end of the series by August 2020, we will have a Virtual "Graduation Ceremony" where Certificates of Attendance and Recognition will be delivered for those completing the entire program.
Program 1: Five Options to Access Foreign Markets and the EFE Methods to Assess
How did you select the countries were you are conducting international operations? What method did you use to compare your selection to other potential countries? Did you quantify your choices? What macro variables did you consider and what weight did you assign to each one of them in the in the decision making process? It is interesting how the selection of a foreign market is often the result of personal preferences or just a response to unsolicited foreign orders. With the EFE method you will no longer have to wonder what country or countries you should select for your company - you will have an actual ‘number’ to compare each country that you are considering. After quantifying your country selection process, you will then participate in a detailed discussion and examination of each Foreign Market Entry Method., thus assessing the best method of market entry for your company product and service, and its planned evolution. A Power Point document will be distributed to each participant with week details.
Session 1-1 (Aug. 28th) – Participants present their products/services; a discussion takes place on reasons for going international and possible international risks
Session 1-2 (Sept. 4th) – Macro variables behind foreign country selection
Session 1-3 (Sept. 11th) – How to select and assess a Foreign Market – the EFE Method
Session 1-4 (Sept. 18th) – 5 Methods of Market Entry – Pros and Cons of each method
Zoom in from Anywhere!
A ZOOM link will be delivered after registration. Seminars will be at 8am PST / 11am EST and last for 1.5 hours.
