Going global is no longer a privilege, but a necessity. Between outsourced labor and localization, apps and analytics, the global economy is a busy place, and can challenge even the most prepared of companies. In order to keep pace with today’s real-time world, you need the skills and tools to make smart decisions in a market where there is little room for anything else. With the right care and pruning, you can not only keep up with the new globalization, but succeed.
Remember when people first started talking about globalization in the 1980s? Branching out into new markets usually meant physically expanding to somewhere in Europe or the U.K. It required opening new offices, growing new markets through direct sales and having dedicated translators interpret content by hand.
