Analysis

You are assessing a real multinational corporation (MNC) by the standards of “best practice” for international management as presented in your course readings.

Describe the nature of the MNC’s international operations in general, its specific interests in the country you selected, its strategies. Research the implementation problems that it has encountered in the country.

Indicate, to the extent that data are available, how those problems were dealt with. Identify the general management, finance, accounting, marketing and human resources practices of the MNC: How does local culture and geography impact strategy, organization, and operations?

The specific Issues/topics you choose for analysis will depend on the industry and country you selected. Choose the ones you think are the most important problems/issues the real MNC faces in the country you selected. Some possible topics/issues for analysis are listed below:  

StrategyBriefly analyze the strategy (industry, products, markets, core competencies). What types of entry modes did the MNC use in the country? Does the mode(s) fit the MNC’s goals and objectives? What is the MNC’s competition in the country? Are there local partners?

Structure: Provide an organization chart showing the MNC and its overseas operations. Why do you think the MNE has chosen this organization structure?

Management: Explain any special management issues that may concern the MNC for overseas operations in the one country. What are its coordination and control systems, and how does it monitor and report issues with subsidiaries? How does the MNC manage its global supply-chain, suppliers?

Finance and accountingAre there issues related to financial, currency and accounting practices? What are the major sources of influence on the company’s accounting standards and practices? Examine financial statements: Are there any differences in terms of language, currency, type of statements (income statement, balance sheet, etc., financial-statement format, extent of footnote disclosures, and the underlying GAAP) between the MNCs reports in the USA and the country you selected?

MarketingAssess the MNC’s marketing mix in the country, its promotional practices, pricing, branding strategies–standardized or differentiated marketing program? What are the characteristics of the MNC’s customers in that country?

Human capitalAnalyze the organizational culture, the composition of the top management team, its international mentality (ethnocentric vs. geocentric) and staffing approach to the extent that public data allow you to do so.

Ethics, CSR: How does the MNC’s code of conduct or ethics address risks such as bribery and corruption? Does the MNC code specifically for that one country or is the code the same for all the countries in which it operates? Does the MNC’s CSR program address local community, stakeholders’ concerns, supplier relationships?
