Organizational Development for Global Business
A truly global enterprise shares and utilizes resources on a global basis in order to access the best market with the highest quality product at the lowest cost. To become truly global, change is needed. Change happens in three levels: organization power structure, organization behaviors and mindsets, and leadership competencies. We offer advisory, consultation and strategic planning services to help clients design and launch their culture change process.
As part of the culture change effort, we will help you redesign the organization’s structure to move from a "headquarter-centric" to a "world-centric" operation. Through power sharing and collaboration, this new structure emphasizes simultaneous management of global efficiency, local responsiveness and global coordination of policy, people and resources for the greatest competitive advantage and profitability.
In order to build a nimble organization that can compete in the global market, you need to have world-class people who can perform at their optimal level. You must have a comprehensive performance management system to help maximize your investment in your human capital. We help you tie your global business strategy to the optimal performance standard. We help you develop and retain the best diverse talents. We also help track talents and capture global knowledge, thereby measuring true performance effectively.
Doing business between developed and developing countries often involve technology transfer. This transfer comes with power inequity issues. We help by conducting a thorough discovery process to ensure the success of this venture is based on fair and equitable contributions. Our work emphasizes establishing open channels of communication, clarifying expectations on process and delivery, and eliminating cross-cultural misunderstandings.
Merger and Acquisition
When a business grows beyond using foreign distributors, the quickest way to go global is to merge or acquire a foreign enterprise. But that does not mean it is the easiest way to achieve business success. Historically, the majority of merger/acquisitions have failed within a short time. Crossing national boundaries add even more layers to the difficulties, and there is often a power inequity issue that needs to be resolved. Through a comprehensive discovery process, we help build the bridge among all parties. We help integrate two different modes of business operations. And we help minimize the unnecessary human cost to the venture.
