Diagnostic – Export Report
The purpose of the diagnostic export/import report is to assess the enterprise’s capacity to exercise on the international scene and, more so, to evaluate its chances of success.
The diagnostic report comes loaded with recommendations on what to focus on when entering international markets. In other words, the do’s and don’ts, customized to your business.
The capacity of the enterprise to operate on an international market is based on its foundation: People, process and technology. Those are the key elements of any enterprise architecture and it also forms the basis for this assessment.
We will do a comprehensive review of the enterprise organization, structure, roles & responsibilities of people, location of people, cultural background, knowledge, skills and competencies as well as their integration with processes and technologies. We will look at it from an international market perspective. An enterprise might be doing very well with what they have in the context of a local market. Will the enterprise be doing as well in an international context? People will now be working with people in several countries, speaking different languages with a different mindset throwing a very different perspective in a business conversation sometimes.
Let set the ground for your success!
Too many people take too lightly the idea of exploiting international markets. They sometime think that it might be as easy as selling and distributing their products in a local market.
