    like said before Tesco's,
    but also ikea
    and then you have the undeniably globalised businesses like amazon, yahoo, coca-cola, wal-mart/asda, mcdonalds

    what question do you think would be likely to come up for globalisation? like whether its necessary for success or?

    I believe emerging markets refer to the markets themselves ie the bric economies. Whereas globalisation is the process of entering these (or other) markets

    NIKE - They used to use child labour from indonesia to produce their products and were sold all over the world. You can use this for CSR aswell.

    I think those links are for emerging markets more than globalisation personally. However I suppose you could argue that by moving into an emerging market you take advantage of globalisation because of their lower costs etc?

    Well, we done globalisation in economics and its basically closer links being formed between the worlds economies. There are global brands where a brand is known worldwide (Coca cola) and Global sourcing which means buying raw materials from one country, producing it in another country and selling in another country. Links with international trade.

    Emerging market are one that has a rapid growth GDP, more customers and more disposable income, whereas globalisation is when you compete with companies in other countries.

    no - with tesco you could say that although they retrenched their fresh and easy chain, they're expanding into emerging markets such as Thailand

    no - royal mail, although its still a market leader simply because its nationalised, to avoid losing its position as a market leader when its privatising, its focusing on modernisation and adapting to the change in consumer behaviours - more e-retailing, less letters - so they're focusing on delivering parcels - 70% of people are more likely to order online if its delivered by royal mail (but thats similar to your apple point)

    no - yahoo, they're losing their position because of competition from google and stuff, but rather than retrenchment, they're focusing on expansion through acquistions, for example with the acquisition of tumblr, becoming better, so enhancing its flickr service, and with competition, rather than attempting to take down competition, its made concessions with it e.g with Facebook they have an advertising partnership --> yahoo have sharing capibilites with fb on all their websites

    is that what you meant or have i got the wrong end of the stick :confused:

    Also seen people asking for a weak culture. On tutor2u someone said Tesco - because of the disinterested staff and long queues. Also it was wound up in the horse meat scandal. So I'm gunna use that and would also be very good in proving a weak culture can have some success - then saying their profits and market share recently falling though which would gain marks.

    I still wouldn't say they lost it though but i guess you do have a valid point if you actually stated that fact
