How to Dominate in Emerging Markets
Many companies would like to be successful in emerging markets but often end up holding relatively mediocre market positions. Based on two decades of research into key success factors in emerging markets, it is possible to put corporate emerging-market strategies fully on track and in line with best practice. Also, our new proprietary research is showing how key success factors are changing and which strategies and operational approaches will bring success in the future. In addition to understanding and implementing best practices, companies must understand which markets will be winners and which losers in the short, medium and long term, and why. This is essential for proper allocation of resources. Also, for any company to be successful in emerging markets it must be able to anticipate changes, risks and opportunities in economic environments.
