Give a Damn about Globalization

by Emily Jasper on August 15, 2012

Tomorrow, I will be one of three panelists on SAP Radio’s show: In the Cloud with Game-Changers. We’re going to talk about globalization, and I think you’ll be interested in the discussion. It’s a free, one-hour event that requires no registration. The show starts at 4:00pm Eastern/1:00pm Pacific, and all you have to do is visit the website. The live show will start playing.

Can’t make it? You can always visit the SAP Radio show website and listen to the replay. The show is “HR Globalization: Ready or Not?”

HR Globalization: Ready or Not?

HR globalization. An inevitable challenge as your marketplace changes and new opportunities arise, perhaps in maturing countries. But are you and your employees ready to venture out of your home base comfort zone, to do business among other cultures around the globe?

The experts have a lot to say.

  • Emily Jasper: “Globalization is centralizing how we do business, bringing us to a new universal model. Comparative advantage will go to those with emphasis on great talent and innovation, not on geographic boundaries.”
  • China Gorman: “Globalization is first about mindset and second about customers. Absent both of these, organizations won’t be global–they’ll be local with global aspirations. And they won’t be competitive.”
  • Dr. Steven Hunt: “Culture can be used as a convenient excuse for the failure of poorly designed and deployed processes.”
