Comapanies, aware of the power and possible economic benefit of doing business globally, have tried to sell their products worldwide, with varying levels of success. They’ve realized that you can’t sell a product the same way in every country.

  • What factors may affect the way you sell a product in a different country?
  • Can you think of a product that you use that would not sell in another culture? Why?
  • How can a company adapt their product to other cultures?
Glocalization is the practice of conducting business according to both local and global considerations.
For the next projectm you will be asked to glocalize a product that is relevant in your culture.
