MGT 510 Week 9 Assignment 3 Successful Domestic Company Goes Global!

Imagine that you are the CEO of a
successful domestic company. In the last 6 months, many potential clients in
foreign countries have expressed a desire to conduct business with you. You
know that in order for your company to grow, you will have to expand overseas.
You have recently attended a local three (3)-day international trade exposition
and have gathered many brochures on the foreign companies interested in doing
business with your company.

After meeting with the Executive
Committee of your successful domestic company, you decide that you will need to
identify a minimum of two (2) countries for expansion and two (2) expatriates
whom you will send into the chosen countries. The selected expatriates will
learn about the countries’ cultures and business activities there. You must
prepare a report for the potential employees who may want to take an overseas
assignment, the Executive Committee, and the Board of Directors.

Use the Internet and Strayer Library to research possible countries for
expansion. Next, conduct research on leveraging expatriates over country
nationals for business overseas. Finally, research books that could help
expatriates in their transition to working overseas. Note: You may
create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of
this assignment.

paper in which you:
