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.
Global Strategy in the Age of China and India. 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. Anil Gupta 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. Anil Gupta offers concrete guidelines that individuals and companies can use to develop a global mindset. The development of a global mindset 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 by which it plays the global game within its 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.
