Developing Global  Competencies

  Developing Global Competencies

In an increasingly global world, no major company can expect to survive, let alone to succeed, unless it measures up to the standards set by the leaders in the field, anywhere in the world.

As a growing number of Brazilian companies embarks on a long journey to internationalize their operations and also to fight more global players at home, IMD is pleased to share insights on some best and next business practices in developing global competencies. The IMD Global Forum will provide you with an opportunity to engage in a discussion with two of our best specialists on global management and share experiences on some of the key challenges and opportunities in global management.

Professors Bala Chakravarthy and Dominique Turpin will present you with practical examples and frameworks on how leading players in emerging markets are developing their global competencies, creating global brands, crafting global organizations and developing a global mindset among their staff and executives.
