Don t trust your business to media l.jpg
Don’t Trust Your Business to Media

  • Very little accurate and objective information coming from media any more – even trade media

  • Lack of context is nearly universal

  • Head counts trumpeted, actual output ignored

  • Plant closings highlighted, plant openings ignored – “If it bleeds it leads”

  • Politicization of global trade issues resulting from general domestic political polarization

Do your own research l.jpg
Do Your Own Research

  • Don’t believe me - or anyone else

  • All competitive and market information must be customized and dynamic – there’s no canned solution

  • Go direct to data sources – statistics can distort

  • Always account for the context of information and data

  • Research global conditions even if your market is domestic only – don’t miss opportunities or threats

  • Use government market research resources such as USEAC

Marketing l.jpg
Marketing

The number one cause of failure for U.S. manufacturers is a lack of marketing and market research

Number two is failing to adapt the company once market conditions are known

Common traits identified in successful u s manufacturers l.jpg
Common Traits Identified in Successful U.S. Manufacturers

  • They open their minds to global trade even if they choose not to participate in global markets or sourcing. No one benefits from anger and fear

  • All have a “can do” attitude embedded from the top down in their corporate cultures, with high levels of employee development and commitment to executing global strategies

  • Most of the companies engage in international activities of some type (Sourcing, Alliances, JVs, WOFEs), and all are creating growth and success in the U.S. as a result

Common traits identified in successful u s manufacturers14 l.jpg
Common Traits Identified in Successful U.S. Manufacturers

  • All of these companies are committed to excellence across the enterprise, not just as a buzzword but as a functional, deliberate and measurable business practice.

  • Whether operating internationally or not all of these companies are exercising a strong commitment to good, old-fashioned operational excellence as a key foundation of their success.

  • These companies directly engage in marketing and market research – the benevolent U.S. market anomaly of the last 50 years is over

Example strategies from case studies l.jpg
Example Strategies from Case Studies

  • Attitude of positive outlook rather than anger about global business conditions. “Daily attitude ‘adjustments’ shared with staff to keep the organization from falling prey to the discouraging headlines our industry and the global economy creates”

  • Evolution in the recognition that “The world will not wait for your company. Take a ‘reasonable risk’ and help the company to evolve into something better (and typically different) than it used to be”

Example strategies from case studies16 l.jpg
Example Strategies from Case Studies

  • Sharing all of their metric tracking with their clients and engaging in “value engineering redesign” to create new opportunities for their products through the conversion of designs from other production methods

  • Harnessing offshore inputs for local competitive advantage, using global experience to conduct a successful “U.S.-China balancing act”

As presented at The Offshore Group’s Manufacturing in Mexico Summit. www.offshoregroup.com


Example strategies from case studies17 l.jpg
Example Strategies from Case Studies

  • Build a business network of alliances and partnerships to remain in alignment with the global movements of their clients.

  • Remember that trade flows both ways, not just inbound, and pursue more exports

  • Recognize thatresistance to change and globalization is not unique to people in the U.S.

  • Look for and capture crossover opportunities to other sectors and categories

Strategic overshoot l.jpg
Strategic Overshoot

The tendency to decide to operate in another country, often China these days, before careful analysis of the actual business and market conditions rationalizes the decision

The real solution is often much closer to home
