Based on your research submit a three page document to the managers of the organization which answers the following set of questions:

Was the company's experience positive, negative, or mixed? Justify your answer.
What legal or political barriers did the company have to overcome? What technological obstacles did the company encounter? What cultural or business differences did the company encounter? What problems did these differences create for the company? What did the company do to overcome the obstacles? Did the company handle cultural and business differences effectively? Why or why not?
Remember to submit a copy of the article you selected when turning in your responses and place your document in the drop box.
