Global Trends and Game Changers. Anil Gupta outlines the biggest global trends and game changers of the next decade and what they mean to you. By 2025, emerging economies like China and India will grow from 1/3 of the global GDP to about half. China will have caught up to the U.S. in terms of economy, and India, will be the third largest in the world. This growth will not always be even, though, or evenly distributed. Gupta looks at the coming two-speed economy and outlines the factors that will shape global business and the world – diverging demographics, stressed natural resources, and empowered individuals. In a multi-polar business world, what are the ramifications for multinational organizations? Who thrives in this new environment? Based on solid data and rich examples, he shares insights on the business world in 2025 and helps audiences navigate – and succeed in – the shifts ahead.
Building and Exploiting Global Presence. Anil Gupta reveals how organizations can transform global presence into global competitive advantage. He focuses on the key questions that business leaders must address in order to develop winning strategies and offers conceptual frameworks that executives can use to answer these questions. Through case studies and examples, Gupta showcases companies that are getting it right and engaging in deep, on-the-ground understanding of the world’s major economies.
Getting China and India Right. Based on solid data and rich examples, Gupta illustrates that China and India are the only two countries in the world that simultaneously constitute four game-changing realities: mega-markets for almost every product and service, platforms to dramatically reduce a company’s global cost structure, platforms to significantly boost a company’s global technology and innovation base, and springboards for the emergence of new fearsome global competitors. This talk outlines how companies can leverage the market and the resource opportunities presented by the China and India phenomenon to achieve global dominance within their particular industries.
Cultivating A Global Mindset. Far too many companies are blind to the ongoing transformation of the global economy and the real opportunities and challenges resulting from this transformation. The winning global leaders, whether individuals or companies, will be the ones with a global mindset who truly grasp the unprecedented transformation of the global economy and possess the capabilities to sense, filter, and integrate diverse opportunities on a global scale ahead of the pack. Anil Gupta offers concrete guidelines that individuals and companies can use to develop a global mindset, which requires not only an openness to and knowledge of diversity across cultures and markets, but also the ability to integrate across this diversity.
Changing the Rules of the Global Game. Anil Gupta believes every company must cultivate a bias for changing the rules it plays the global game by within its particular industry. He explains the logic that companies can use to reinvent the rules of the game by rethinking answers to the three classic questions for every business: How can we dramatically redefine who our target customers are? How can we dramatically reinvent the value that we should be delivering to our customers? And, how can we dramatically redesign the end-to-end value chain architecture in order to create and deliver this value?
Leveraging Synergies across Businesses. Anil Gupta shares insights from his research and consulting experience about why most companies talk incessantly about the benefits of synergy but find it very hard to actually realize these benefits. He talks about how companies can sidestep three common pitfalls in the pursuit of synergies: assuming that just because two businesses have something in common, there must be synergies; ignoring the possibility that alliances between independent companies may sometimes be more effective and efficient than internal coordination between peer business units; and, looking only at the potential benefits while ignoring the costs associated with trying to realize synergies.
