Overview

  • How did Asia’s “pioneers” succeed in building global companies and brands?
  • How can Asian companies today build the capabilities, infrastructure, and strengths to buttress their international expansion?
  • What are the greatest threats to Asian companies’ global strategies?
  • What will tomorrow’s global companies look like?
Global Future: The Next Challenge of Asian Business reveals how Asia’s giants have grown into multinational companies and provides insight into how today’s globalizers can achieve the same success.

The book offers a combination of case studies from business leaders, authoritzative material on business strategy, and a “globalization staircase” framework to show how Asian companies have succeeded in the past and can potentially succeed in the future. By looking at three distinct stages of Asian companies’ globalization—from early pioneers, to current network builders, to today’s newcomers—the authors paint a rich picture of how Asian companies at different levels of development can best meet the challenges of a global future.
