Thoroughly assess how globalization has impacted the public corporation you researched. Provide a thoughtful and well researched response. Consider for example, how your chosen company has been involved in expanding globally, how it has been impacted by global competition, and the global economy. Do not simply define the term globalization. If your company has locations in other countries, do not just state that your corporation has locations in other countries or simply list the various countries in which the company does business. You need to assess the impact globalization has had on your selected corporation.

Your assessment should demonstrate that you have read, understand, and can apply the globalization concepts covered in the textbook and course resources. You must consider the various aspects of globalization discussed in the course and make judgments about their impacts to your selected corporation. Do not write about globalization in general terms. Your assessment should be directly related to your selected corporation. Your writing here should thoroughly assess how globalization has impacted your chosen corporation. Do not Google “globalization”. You must display an understanding based on what is studied in this course and demonstrate an ability to apply the concepts in a real-world assessment of a corporation.

Industrial Organization Model

Thoroughly apply the industrial organization model to determine how your corporation could earn above-average returns (i.e. revenue). This model is based upon the corporation’s external environment which is anything outside of the corporation that can influence or impact its business (macro)/operations (micro). Your application should walk through the components the model suggests are needed to earn above average returns. Hint: see Figure 1.2 in the textbook. Do not Google “Industrial Organization Model” or simply provide a definition or write in general terms. Your writing here should apply the components of the model, as described in the course material, to your specific corporation, demonstrate your understanding of the concepts, as described in this course, and demonstrate your ability to apply those concepts to a real-world corporation. Read chapter 1 in the course textbook as it provides a solid background on this model. Review the Week 1 Learn video Lecture for supporting content. Cite your sources and avoid the use of direct quotes. After reading these instructions, replace this blue text with your application and change the font color to black.

Resource-Based Model

Thoroughly apply the resource-based model to determine how your corporation could earn above-average returns (i.e. revenue). Consider the corporation’s unique resources (corporate culture, land, location, equipment, brand, reputation, trademarks, patents, etc.) and capabilities (skills, experience, etc.) that set it apart from its competition. Your application should walk through the components the model suggests are needed to earn superior returns. Hint: See Figure 1.3 in the textbook.

Stakeholders

Thoroughly evaluate how each category of stakeholder, described in the textbook, impacts the overall success of your selected corporation. Do not Google “stakeholders” or simply provide a definition or list of stakeholders. You must provide an evaluation that demonstrates your understanding of each classification of stakeholders, as described in this course. Hint: See Figure 1.4. Do not write in general terms about stakeholders. Your evaluation must thoroughly and specifically describe how each classification of stakeholders impacts your selected corporation’s success. It is critical that you display your understanding of stakeholder classifications. Without the identification and evaluation of each of the stakeholder classifications, discussed in the course, you have not met the requirements. Read chapter 1 for additional background on Stakeholders and the Classifications, as it provides a solid background that applies to this section.
