Episode Description

Ready to grow your company through global expansion? Smart strategy, according to Emergent Research’s Steve King. “Almost three quarters of global GDP growth over the next 10 years is expected to come from emerging market countries. How can you not participate in that growth?" But the road to profitable subsidiaries can be bumpy, cautions SAP’s Mike Morel. “Subsidiaries have been the stepchildren of the corporate world, always a second priority. If corporate organizations can put a strategy in place that brings all the pieces together, you are going to get one plus one equals three. This is the home run that everyone is looking for.” Our panelists will explore key considerations, including the rewards of reduced labor costs and tax havens vs. risks of losing your organizational identity, and the costs of opening a subsidiary vs. dismantling one. Pour a cup of Joe, Earl or OJ and join us for food for thought on Subsidiaries: Smart Game-Changer or Global-Size Headache?
