President of the Division needs to assess global strategy based upon a thorough analysis of the industry, competitors, and competing brands. Information to the background are contained in “Note on the World OTC Drug Industry” (GM 711), “Competitors in the OTC Drug Industry” (GM 712) and “Winning and Losing Brands in the OTC Drug Industry” (M 510). Case allows students to assess how to bring division into compliance with their views on global strategy and global marketing.
