Do you believe that some companies arrogance about their success in their home country has had a negative impact on their ability to expand internationally? Why does this happen? Do you have an example of a country that learned a difficult lesson from their arrogance?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Yes I do think success in home country does make companies bit arrogant. Since they understand the mindset and preferences of consumers in their home country they have it easier to contemplate solutions.
Now believing that same strategies that worked in their home companies, can help companies perform better internationally doesn't always work since market models and consumer preferences might vary a lot in different countries.
Example is Uber when they first entered India they thought by keeping prices high they can straightaway make some profits but it didn't work and they had to than chage their market strategy in India to lure more customers.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
