Guidelines: A written group report and a group presentation are expected.  The written group report of about 3000 words (excluding appendices and references), in addition to proper style, must be typed, with pages numbered and appropriate headings.  The report is based on both secondary research using library and reliable internet resources, as well as primary research, in terms of making contact with specialized experts, government agencies, and/or businesses (optional).  Make sure to apply the relevant course concepts while writing your report. All exhibits must be integrated within the report, numbered consecutively, with appropriate format, headings and labels, and clear acknowledgement of the data sources.  References should be in the APA format.

Each group will be responsible for researching and developing a globalization plan for an innovative Inland Empire business from a chosen sector category.

Each group should shortlist five companies for which it wishes to develop an innovative growth strategy through in-depth research of potential partner organizations in a target market.     This shortlist should be from the list of Inland Empire manufacturer exporters, in the Blackboard course materials module 1.   Each group will be assigned either an actual client or one of the firms chosen from the shortlist.  The group will also be assigned one of the four nations for developing the strategy of a chosen company: China, the Philippines, India and South Korea.   You will be developing strategy for your assigned firm with respect to that nation.

The objective of the report is to conduct research on the strategies of various potential partner organizations in the target market, in order to identify how those will fit in the overall strategic growth puzzle solution for your assigned company.   As a general guideline, for steps 1-4, you will identify four different firms as a potential partner and analyze the strategy of that firm using the course materials for the associated module.    For step 7, you will identify four additional firms for partnership, who could range from those locally owned and within that sector and nation, to any foreign firm that operates in that nation, or in the region where that nation is, or in other nations.    Each of these different types of firms could be of potential value for you as a partner.
