Global PerspectiveGlobal Gateways

  • Confronted with increasing global competition for expanding markets, multinational companies are changing their marketing strategies and altering their organizational structure.

  • A recent study of North American and European corporations indicated that nearly 75% of the companies are revamping their business processes.

  • The flexibility of a similar company may enable it to reflect the demands of global markets and redefine its programs more quickly than larger multinationals.

Global Marketing Management

  • 1970s – “standardization versus adaptation”

  • 1980s – “globalization versus localization”

  • 1990s – “global integration versus local responsiveness”

  • The trend back toward localization is caused by the new efficiencies of customization made possible by the Internet and increasingly flexible manufacturing processes.

  • From the marketing perspective customization is always best.

  • As global markets continue to homogenize and diversify simultaneously, the best companies will avoid the trap of focusing on country as the primary segmentation variable.
