W2 Discussion “Local or Standard?”

Local or
Standard?

Companies
that move into a new country are often faced with a dilemma of adjusting to
local practices or enforcing the company’s standard practice. Not all companies
and not all countries will come up with the same solution.

  • Initial post – research an
         international company that has faced such a dilemma. Document the dilemma
         and explain if they adjusted to local or used standard practices (yes, you
         have to take a stance!). Be sure to cite at least one internet reference
         for each company to help your peers respond.
  • Reply to peers – Did your peer
         take a stance on the local vs. standard? Do you agree with them? Why or
         why not? What questions do you have for your peer about their observation?
         Use the company internet reference to consider in your reply.
