We are living in a world experiencing rapid geopolitical and economic changes. While regional economies are becoming increasingly integrated, companies are more and more challenged by diverse cultural environments, varied market needs, international competitors, and technological and product innovation. To survive the competition of the 21st century, companies must continuously learn, adapt, and innovate as quickly as the world around them. More than often, they need to develop a business strategy in response to global competitors.
