International Enterpreneurship Project

International Entrepreneurship Project

This project requires research, imagination, and logic in applying the content of this course and book. So here we go! Let's role play as we apply our knowledge from this class!

Directions:

Create an imaginary company that you have been operating in the domestic arena for some time. You represent top management and you have decided it is time to go international! Be sure to cover all of the topics listed below in your paper. Youâ??ll want to back up your decisions using your textbook knowledge and outside research sources, a minimum of three total.

Be sure to use formal APA writing style. Your project should be a minimum of 3-4 pages in length, double spaced using 12 point font. Three sources are required and please include a bibliography at the end of your paper (not counted as one of the 3-4 required pages).

Your project is due Sunday of week four no later than 11:59 p.m EST. Please upload your project to the Drop Box area labeled Project. Please work on your project each week of your course.

Please see below for all of the topics you will need to cover in your project. **Hint for success: I've divided the project up into weekly sections to make it more manageable -- tackle a section each week!

PAPER TOPICS

WEEK 1

â?¢Describe your company and its operations, relative size, and so forth. Give reasons for your decision to go international.

â?¢Decide on an appropriate country in which to operate, and give your rationale for this choice.

â?¢State your planned entry strategy, and give your reasons for this strategy.

WEEK 2

â?¢Describe the environment in which you will operate and the critical operational factors that you must consider and how they will affect your company.

â?¢Give a cultural profile of the local area in which you will be operating. What are the workers going to be like? What kind of reception do you anticipate from local governments, suppliers, distributors, and so on?

â?¢Draw up an organization chart showing the company and its overseas operations, and describe why you have chosen this structure.

WEEK 3

â?¢Decide on the staffing policy you will use for top-level mangers, and give your rationale for this policy.

â?¢Describe the kinds of leadership and motivational systems you think would be most effective in this environment. Give your rationale.

â?¢Discuss the kinds of communication problems your managers might face in the host-country working environment. How should they prepare for and deal with them?

WEEK 4

â?¢Explain any special control issues that concern you for this overseas operation. How do you plan to deal with them?
