Global Marketing
The foreign marketing involvement of a manufacturing company may widely vary from a state of no direct involvement to a state of total involvement. Several types of involvement are generally observed, even though they are not mutually exclusive nor sequentially progressive.
Depending on the kind and degree of its involvement in foreign marketing, a firm has to re-orient and re-organize its activities to cope with different levels of operational responsibilities inherent in such involvement. To throw some light on the issue, some guidelines are available from what is called EPRG orientation. The EPRG framework attempts, four broad types of orientation of a firm towards foreign marketing.
This paper aims to suggest a model to assist when deciding which foreign investor to select. In much of the current literature on the problem faced by the small transitional countries/companies, globalization by foreign transnational companies (TNCs) is considered to be the generic expansion strategy. The question is, however, which foreign investor to select. The paper evaluates the potentials of the EPRG scheme (Ethnocentrism, Polycentrism, Regiocentrism, and Geocentrism) in choosing foreign investor. It enables company to analyze and predict its competitors' behavior. (Biljana Crnjak-Karanovič).
The Ethnocentric, Polycentric, Regiocentric, and Geocentric Framework (EPRG) dates back to Perlmuter (1969) and his associates Wind and Douglas (1973). The EPRG framework identifies four management approaches or orientations of the company while internationalization process is taking place. The framework is based on the assumption that the level of a company’s involvement in the international business gradually evolves.
EPRG orientations describe an exporter's process of evolution and internalization. Companies begin by being Ethnocentric, i.e., they emphasize…...

..., though not for poorer or richer countries. One more recent country case, noticed that Iceland's growth performance has considerably improved since the implementation of the financial liberalisation programme-mid-1990s. However, economic growth has been volatile and accompanied by recurrent sizeable economic imbalances. Does the financial structure matter? Financial structure of bank-based versus market-based system has been tested in Australia. The empirical test found two-way relationship between economic growth and banking system. For the stock market, it is one-way relationship from financial market to economic growth. Another root of analysis tests the sectored growth effects of financial liberalisation including capital account liberalisation. It found no effect of financial liberalisation or financial development on the value added of different industries. In addition, it found positive and significant growth effects of liberalised financial sector on establishing new firms. It is suggested that the increased competition following liberalisation may increase opportunities and projects, while prices fall of final goods reduces the value added. In summary, financial liberalisation contributes to developing the financial system in many ways, most notably by reinforcing the market and by reducing government intervention in the pricing of financial services and the allocation of credit. However, the experience of the 1990s’ financial liberalisation...

...Emerging technology in healthcare The emerging technology you're working on with your LT should offer benefits to the health care field. Analyzing tangible and intangible measures in respect to what's best for an organization is a key assessment. In the business of patient care, one of the most notable tangible values is the strategic improvement of patient satisfaction. It is definitely measurable and can be tied to an increase in revenue. Last week your LT worked on the System Evaluation Process of the Trending Technology Proposal in your learning teams. What are you finding are significant strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of the technology through tangible and/or intangible measures? What are some other tangible values expected to be recognized with your emerging technology that focuses on patient care? One of the patient care measure we are looking at is the actual time the patient is in the office, and how long they were actually with the doctor. We can measure this by reviewing the time the patient arrived and was completely registered. After that our Clinical Manager reviews the time punches of the nursing notes and then the time of the physician documentation or attestation. Since our system is "live" or "real" time, it is hard to alter the original time punches. I think this is great because it allows us to pinpoint a problem directly and go straight to the source. However, we have had many physicians voice their dislike because they know their......

...Running head: EMERGING ISSUES Assignment #2 Emerging Issues Task Force   Abstract In 1982, the Financial Accounting Foundation Structure Committee produced a report on operating efficiency that indicated a need for more timely guidance on implementation questions. That report resulted in the formation of an advisory group, which evolved into the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF). This task force was established to assist the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in improving financial reporting through the timely identification, discussion, and resolution of financial accounting issues. (FASB, 2011) This paper discusses and explores the EITF in greater detail. Discuss how the Emerging Issues Task Force influences Generally Accepted Accounting Standards. The Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) was formed in 1984 to respond to the recommendations of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) task force on timely financial reporting guidance. The EITF influences general accepted accounting standards by providing improved financial reporting through timely identification, discussion, and resolutions within the framework of an existing authority. The EITF designed to reduce diversity in practice on current issues in a quick and timely manner that should not exceed three to four annual meetings. This advisory board also minimizes the need for the FASB to spend time and effort addressing narrow implementation, application, or other emerging issues......

Emerging Adulthood

...Jeffrey Arnett, author of Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens through the Twenties has written that “emerging adulthood is neither adolescence nor young adulthood, but is distinct from them both.” Emerging adulthood is a time of transition, a developmental bridge between adolescence and adulthood. This period of development is a period of change and exploration. The goal of emerging adulthood is to emerge from the chrysalis of adolescence and transform into an adult. There are beneficial results as well as negative impacts of this developmental stage. A beneficial result of emerging adulthood is the gained understanding of how to manage one’s emotions. This can be as simple as learning to control angry outbursts or disappointment with ease. This is beneficial because it demonstrates the transition between a child and a grown adult. Emotional development is a major beneficial result from emerging adulthood. Furthermore, this developmental stage encourages and aides the change from dependence upon parents to the independence that is typical of adults. This independence is beneficial because it prepares the emerging adult for their future autonomously from their parents. Currently society has labeled these emerging adults as the “Me Generation” because they are more self-focused. Furthermore, they have a sense of entitlement. “We're seeing an epidemic of people who are having a hard time making the transition to work — kids who had too much success...

... from “miracle growth” moved their production process to organized manufacturing, which resulted in rapid industrialization. This transformation enabled poor countries to replicate technologies, and move farmers to manufacturing segments, allowing them to be a part of the labor force. This movement resulted in lowering unemployment, raising income and ultimately rapid growth. However, the growth will likely slow down because manufacturing is more complex than before and China has made it impossible for newcomers to compete in the global market. Policy makers in rich countries are putting a burden on developing nations since they will not provide loans due to debt and low growth of the developing nation. Additionally, due to high unemployment rate, it will be hard for products and services to be bought. Today, the stock market in developed countries, like Japan, U.S., and Germany, are gaining power. In the U.S., the decline of consumer demand, rise in interest rates, lower labor costs, and domestic energy production are some of many reasons for the upswing of manufacturing activities in this country. On the other hand, emerging countries, like China, Brazil and India, are not growing as expected. Therefore, companies with global operations are feeling the pinch from the downward economy in emerging countries. The crisis in China and India has made it challenging for businesses to invest and consumers to spend. In the mid-2000s, western countries made investments in the...

.... Finally mobile devices can be prone to virus and other malicious attacks which can bring privacy problems to users [6]. Another challenge that MCC faces is the issues related to offloading the computing from mobile devices to cloud. As discussed earlier offloading is one of the main features of MCC, however it does not always leads saving of energy. For example when compiling a code, offloading might take up more energy than doing it on a local mobile device. So offloading can contribute towards energy saving only when the code to be compiled is of larger size. Conclusion MCC is an emerging technology and it can be said that the future holds bright for this concept. However there is some Achilles heel like it needs a constant Internet connection. With the introduction of more robust infrastructure and better cloud-based services, I believe that this new technology is here to stay and flourish.

... identifies four management approaches or orientations of the company while internationalization process is taking place. The framework is based on the assumption that the level of a company’s involvement in the international business gradually evolves. EPRG orientations describe an exporter's process of evolution and internalization. Companies begin by being Ethnocentric, i.e., they emphasize their domestic market in decision making. As experience and involvement in exporting is increasing, companies become Polycentric - they emphasize a host market in decision making. As the number of export markets increases, the company may become Regiocentric - emphasize a region (e.g.. South America, North America) in decision making. Finally, Geocentric companies are worldwide oriented and emphasize both multiple markets and regions in decision making. Ethnocentric orientation. The domestic company seeking sales extension of its domestic products into foreign markets illustrates this orientation. Domestic business is its priority, even though foreign markets may be vigorously pursued, since company's orientation remains basically domestic. Company seeks markets where demand is similar to the home market and foreign sales are seen as »profitable extension of domestic operations «Marketing planning is conducted in the home country. There is no systematic overseas research. Minimal, if any, efforts are made to adapt the marketing mix. Polycentric orientation. Once a company......

...* U.S. companies remained the most popular targets for emerging market companies with 31 acquisitions made in the United States in the first half of 2013, down from the 52 deals completed in the second half of 2012. The buyers came from South and East Asia (9) and India (7). The region accounted for the majority of acquisitions of U.S. companies so far this year. Emerging market to developed market transactions fell to their lowest level since 2005. Many high growth market companies are taking a ‘wait and see’ approach before investing in developed economies because many of them are experiencing varying degrees of economic uncertainty,” said Barnes. “The United States continues to remain the developed market of choice for (these) deals due to its many positive attributes including market size, plentiful resources, and skilled workforce,” he said. * Foreign direct investment (FDI) is the single largest source of capital inflows for developing countries. In industrialized countries, the size of FDI inflows ranges from zero to almost half the size of gross fixed capital formation. Surprisingly, the impact of exchange rate variability on FDI rarely enters debates over exchange rate management or monetary policy. One reason for this omission could be the lack of conclusive evidence regarding the impact of exchange rate variability on the investment behavior of multinational firms. A long list of studies provide patches of evidence that multinational firms are likely to consider...

...Emerging Adulthood Victoria Peacock August 11, 2014 PSY/205 Karen Underwood Emerging Adulthood The transition into adulthood is one of the most complex and significant shifts of any generation. It is a complex and ongoing process that starts as soon as a child is born and continues as the child becomes an adolescent, to early adult life, and then through the stages of adulthood. When I think of the meaning of becoming an adult I think of setting aside childish ways and becoming a responsible adult. When emerging to adult hood you have to do adult things like being financially responsible, taking care of the household, cooking, cleaning, servicing your car regularly, and putting gas in it. There are so many things you need to do to for a smooth transition into adulthood. Becoming an adult is the most important thing in life. Culture I think going into adulthood in my culture the expectations were set pretty high. After high school I was expected to get a job and start making my own money. I had a boyfriend so my expectations where not to move out with him until I was married, no kids until I was married. I also had to continue to go to church every Sunday. In my culture graduating from high school is a big part of growing up it is an accomplishment we wait to see and work hard to get to. Graduating from high school is the stepping stone into adult hood. It is the first thing that starts your life because it is a what is next process. One has to ask ones self is...

... of this technology in this sector, the communications and IT field is expected to grow at a much larger pace. Since 4G technology offers much high data and voice communication transfer rates, the telecommunication companies are trying hard to utilize its potential. In these times, people prefer those services that are lag free and offer quick and speedy connectivity (Towsley, 2012). 4G technology does exactly that and with communication companies implementing it in their profile, it will guarantee them more consumers which will have a positive effect on their income statements. 4G benefits in UAE 4G technology has numerous benefits that are not limited to any specific area or country. UAE is no exception and hence it is extremely beneficial for it to offer this service. The world of today is considered a global village due to the advancement in the technological field (Annadata, 2010) and it has become essential for people to connect with each other all around the world. With the implementation of 4G technology, faster connections will become possible and it will make it easier for people to connect to the world. Since the technology is emerging, applying it early into the nation’s communication system will be extremely beneficial. The amount of benefit that a country can get from this technology depends upon the type of sector that it will be implemented. The speed of this technology makes it advantageous for those people (Garcia, 2005) who are frequent travellers...

When I came to AUN, I was elected the class representative of my GEN class (in my first semester). That was because a few students from my high school were in the class and they know I am a quiet but confident student so they believed in me. A leader that has had a significant influence on me is Atiku Abubakar. He is a leader I admire a lot. At first he was a very poor child going to school with no much hope of becoming someone as great as he has become but he never gave up. He strived hard and finally he is achieving his aims. Instead of going to a foreign country to invest, as most leaders in Nigeria do, he decided to invest in his own hometown. He gives me the hope that no matter how hard things get, I can still make it. I also want to be a leader like him. My aims as a participant of the emerging leader’s academy are to develop my leadership skills which I believe are hidden but with practice and motivation, they will emerge....

...Nicholas Baumgarten Dr. Bishnu Ghimire English 1010 10/1/2015 Evaluation Essay on Emerging Adulthood In a time of economic instability and limited opportunities, the road to successful independence has been nothing short of a suicide mission for young adults of today. It was once mandatory and it was a way of American life to go out and live on your own after you technically become an adult. A lot of times it was expected, but now our country and our society has gone through a world of change and success is not as probable for young adults today as it was back then. This has brought to our attention a very important question we as a nation, a society should ask ourselves, “should young adults around the age of 18 move out of their parent’s house as soon as graduation or even months following.” The early years of adulthood are about finding, nurturing and learning to take care of yourself before you step out into the real world and make your own choices that will change your future so let’s not rush teens out of the house. Instead, support them and make that decision when it’s the right time and not right away. Throughout the past our society led us to believe that young adults, coming fresh out of high school, should be ready to move out of their parent’s house right after graduation to start their own lives and become independent human beings just like their parents did, and their parents did. Considering that things have changed over the years and the world is not...

Emerging Nokia

...Emerging Nokia Case Study JANUARY 3, 2012 Defining the Nature of the Problem The nature of global markets has been rapidly changing in the last twenty – twenty five years. These changes to a great degree have been determined by the major breakthroughs in the geopolitical makeup of the world. One of the pivotal events that fueled the economic changes around the globe was the collapse of the communist bloc in the beginning of the 1990s and consequently the dismantling of the bi-polar world order that had been previously characterized not only by two antagonistic ideologies, but also by two incompatible and mostly isolated from each other marketplaces. The description of that old world order was often referred to as “the free and the communist world”, “the West and the East”, which later morphed into” developed and developing” countries. As the pure and acute ideological  division of the world has moved to the fringes of the global agenda, leaving the front stage of the world community focus to the global economic, ecologic and broader humanitarian challenges, the new world paradigm has been more and more often referred to as “developed and emerging economies”. The playing out of these new global realities is very vividly represented by the nature of the challenges and the business decisions required of the executives of the world-renown engineering and telecommunications giant – Nokia, which is mostly known to the world for its leading role in the mobile phone handsets...
