Title: Choose an NGO/Real Estate developer/Sports Facility that is considering international expansion. This organisation is wishing to expand internationally and needs to determine and analyse factors that will favour (or not) expanding to a particular region/country of the world (for example your country of origin). Create a business report that includes the following 5 sections in which you answer what factors should be considered in the organisation’s decision about whether to carry out this international expansion.
I- Executive Summary
In this section you should provide an introduction that describes the layout of the report and the factors that will be addressed. You will need to briefly introduce the organisation you have chosen and present the organisation’s policy and strategy, vision and mission, ethical values, cross- cultural human resources management, international marketing management and finance policies/objectives in general.
III- Your country
Here in this section, for your country there will be a 3 to 4 page report determining the issues the organization would face if it decided to locate/expand there. Reference should be made to the organisation’s policy and strategy, vision and mission, ethics, human resources management, marketing management and finance issues relating to that specific country/region.
You should also address the social, technological, economic, environmental, political, legal, ethical, and security issues that the organisation may face by choosing to locate in the country you have chosen to write about.
You will need to provide credible and correctly referenced data in support of your arguments.
