International expansion beyond your traditional domestic territory can be a daunting endeavor. Ensuring your company understands the nuances of doing business globally must be approached with proven efficient and effective tactics. Otherwise, your efforts will be costly from a financial, human resource and customer perspective.

Some core strategies to ensure a successful globalization implementation include:

  • Conducting an internal audit before undertaking a new globalization initiative
  • Setting measurable goals and benchmarks to understand how your efforts are tracking
  • Understanding why you want to go global: expansion, optimization and/or simplification
  • Outlining reasons to choose an established supply chain, globalization partner to minimize hurdles and roadblocks
