Episode Description

Ready to grow your company into a global brand? Good plan, says Emergent Research’s Steve King. “Almost 75% 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?" More good news from Vivaldi Partners’ Erich Joachimsthaler. “Today, we run a global business in a hyperlocal fashion. Collaboration between headquarters and subsidiaries is changing profoundly due to...new social technology and collaboration tools. The world is still round, NOT flat.” But globalization can be like a real-life blended family. SAP’s Mike Morel warns, “Subsidiaries have been the stepchildren of the corporate world, always a second priority.” Enterprise Management Associates’ Shawn Rogers sums it up: “Wherever you go...there you are and don’t you forget it.” Pour a cup and join us for Subsidiaries: No, Virginia, the World Is Not Flat! p.s. Join us for In the Cloud with Game-Changers, Thursday 1 PM Pacific on The Business Channel.
