Why Choose this Training Course?

Every organisation is affected by globalisation. It is emerging as the most powerful force influencing 21st century business, and all managers and leaders need to be aware of the ways in which globalisation affects their business in the 21st century.

Globalisation opens new market opportunities.  This requires us to look much more widely in our assessment of business potential.  At the same time our markets become more open to international competition.  In addition to this trend of radical change, globalisation can affect every dimension of a business, not just buying and selling.  This means that all organisations have to acquire a much broader set of skills and capabilities if they are to survive and prosper.

This intensive training course provides a basis for experienced managers to prepare themselves for greater responsibilities that require an appreciation of the direction of change in global business. It addresses the challenges of operating in a multinational and cross-cultural context and making decisions that take into account the new opportunities that are offered by the increasingly open structure of world markets.

This training course will feature:

  • How and why the structure of the world economy is changing
  • How an organisation develops the capability to become global
  • Embedding globalisation within a robust business strategy
  • Management and leadership challenges in a multi-cultural environment
  • How to develop ourselves as future global managers and leaders
