Much has been written about globalization. And while it may seem a topic of only academic interest, the fact is that companies big and small are expanding operations and markets across the globe at an unprecedented pace, aiming to build a local presence in emerging markets, developing partnerships/joint ventures with local companies, and recruiting talent around the world.
As a participant in our recent study on Building Global Capabilities said, “In order to operate as a global company it is imperative that we learn to collaborate more effectively and understand the economic, legal, cultural, and societal nuances of all geographic regions to grow our business and increase revenues.”
Join us for our webinar - Building Global Capabilities - to discover what we found during our field research on how companies are becoming global organizations, what it takes to build global teams, and what tools and techniques are used to connect these far flung teams.
The event will run for 60 minutes, will offer quantitative and qualitative data from our newly released report, followed by a question and answer session.
