Individual repor 2400 word | Management homework help

case from Grant’s ‘Contemporary Strategy Analysis’ 9th Edition textbook 

    Harvard referencing style 

do a written individual case analysis which addresses the questions detailed below relating to your chosen case: 

    

HAIER GROUP – Internationalisation Strategy 

  1. What are the main features of Haier’s internationalisation strategy since the early 1990s and how does it differ from the pattern of internationalisation typical of Western enterprises?
     
  2. How successful has Haier’s internationalisation strategy been and why?
     
  3. What are the principal features of Haier’s management system? In what ways do Haier’s principles and methods of management differ from those deployed by Western companies? What lessons might be drawn by a) other Chinese companies and b) by Western
    enterprises?
     

    

Recommendations 

  1. In support of your analysis you should draw on material and references from all your modules, as well as make sure to read the relevant chapters in Grant’s textbook.
     
  2. It is recommended that you identify which strategy and management concepts will enable you to analyse the case. These will help you see the company in a broader context, rather than simply focusing on the company and the case material.
     
  3. Key to success will be to think and write strategically. Don’t get lost in detail. Analyse the case material then add value through comment and opinion as you discuss the questions.
