Ethical Considerations in Global Expansion

 


 

In Unit 1 you formed a team and started the process of growing your simulation company. Part

 

of this team formation is to create a mission and values/culture profile. Greg Ballard talks about

 

this important topic in his video Follow Your Values. View the video ?Follow Your Values with

 

Greg Ballard (Glu Mobile) http://ecorner.stanford.edu/authorMaterialInfo.html?mid=1643 . The

 

creation of a mission and values/culture profile is a core element of organizational success and

 

long range planning for all companies, regardless of size or age. Understanding this process will

 

help increase your ability to contribute to your company?s success in the future.

 

In future quarters of game play one task that your team will face is to analyze growth

 

opportunities for expansion. There are many factors to consider when reviewing your choices

 

for expansion. One consideration is one of ethics; does your company culture support the

 

expansion choices you will be making? Decision making tied to ethics and values may not be

 

easy but can be advantageous. McMurrian and Matulich (2006) cite Ferrell ?These advantages

 

include higher levels of efficiency in operations, higher levels of commitment and loyalty from

 

employees, higher levels of perceived product quality, higher levels of customer loyalty and

 

retention, and better financial performance (Ferrell 2004)? (p.11).

 

As part of the management team, you will need to be in consensus on expansion plans and will

 

be using the cultural profile your team has created in the marketplace simulation as one filter to

 

make your final decision. Many companies perform this kind of evaluation when looking to

 

expand internationally. For example, manufacturing facilities in other parts of the world have

 

unsafe working conditions (Saini, 2013). This may or may not have a direct impact on your

 

company, given its culture, but you should know about these types of things if you want to be

 

viewed as acting in accordance with your company ethics. So your research should go beyond

 

just the typical numbers based data, i.e., GNP. You really want to know the country and how it

 

operates.

 

This Assignment where you research markets outside the United States and make a

 

recommendation for expansion practices the professional skills of:

Assignment Details

 

In a 4?6 page APA formatted paper excluding text, diagrams, and other visual/oral aids as

 

appropriate, address the following:

 

?

 


 

Discuss the challenges of values/ethics based business decision making in the current

 

global marketplace. Include citations from at least three scholarly sources to support

 

your thoughts. You should also incorporate the work you have done in the Discussion

 

topic(s) for Unit 1 into your response for this section.

 


 

?

 


 

Research the markets that you can expand into from your home base in Chicago. These

 

are, Paris, Sao Paulo, and Shanghai from a social and political climate of each using

 

Hofstede?s Cultural Dimensions, (http://geert-hofstede.com/national-culture.html) which

 

you learned about in GB580: Strategic Management, as a foundation. You may also

 

include additional information on culture that you find in your research.

 


 

?

 


 

Using the results of your research, compare this information to the company mission,

 

vision and values that the team will have already completed to determine the

 

progression of expansion. For example, the country with the strongest connection to

 

your company culture will be the easiest to expand into, and the country with the

 

weakest connection may be the last.

 


 

?

 


 

Recommend to your team the progression of expansion and include a detailed rationale

 

for your choices.

 


 

As you work in this Assignment you can share your information in the team space so the team

 

can use it in the decision making process. Remember that differences in opinion are a great tool

 

for discussion and increased effectiveness in decision making.
