Description

You will write a 4-6-page reflection paper (double spaced; 12pt font; 1 inch margins) . All the requirements are in the file which I attached. I also paste some powerpoint and class materials in this file.

You will write a 4-6-page reflection paper (double spaced; 12pt font; 1 inch margins) on what you have learned about (i) the globalization of business innovation and entrepreneurship, (ii) being a global manager and (iii) about what you will need to do to further develop your competencies and comfort to become an effective global manager. In preparing your response to this assignment, you should draw from your personal experiences on the virtual international study tour, from the content of the speakers who present during the study tour, virtual company visits, and the assigned readings.

Connect the insights and lessons that you have derived from the assigned readings to what you actually saw in practice. Discuss both the consistencies and inconsistencies. Integrate all these into a personal reflection on the new knowledge and insights that you have gained about the globalization of business operations and effective global management.

Then, develop a “global manager personal development plan” on what you will need to do to further develop your competencies and comfort to become a “true” global manager. Since it is a personal reflection, the paper should be written in “the first person.”

I offer the questions below to assist you with your journaling and with the writing of your personal reflection and personal development plan paper. The list below is only a guide. You are encouraged to create and respond to your own set of personal reflection questions.

  • What are the key dynamics and underlying trends in globalization? How are these changing? How might they change in the future?
  • How is technology impacting global business strategy and operations?
  • What are the differences and similarities in dominant business norms and practices you have observed across the different countries, both overt and subtle?
  • What seems to be the personal attributes and managerial competencies necessary to be an effective and successful global manager?
  • How comfortable are you with the possibility of becoming a global manager? What are your strengths for such a role?
  • What things will you have to change/develop to become a more effective global manager?
  • What frameworks or ideas presented in the readings were most beneficial to you to identify strengths and areas of needed improvement for you to become a more effective global manager?
  • What are your career and life vision? How have the global management concepts/frameworks and the global managers that you met on this global business intensive course enhanced the clarity of your career and life vision?

GLOBAL MANAGER PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Globalization has often been associated with the rapid increase and development in the
growth of business and technological ideas, free movement of capital, goods, ideas, people,
knowledge, and information around the world. I have learned that the globe's economic
landscape is being shaped by the rigorous changes in the shift or economic activities between
different nations. Globalization at the meso- and micro- levels has only given a partial picture,
thus bringing about bias. Therefore, the definition of entrepreneurship has been narrowed down
to the start-up of new organizations and, as a result, ignoring the high degree of entrepreneurship
and business innovation portrayed by the incumbent companies. I have understood that the
narrowing down of globalization with respect to business innovation and entrepreneurship is
problematic because the two generate new products, new technologies, and new processes for
production that are at economic development and growth's core. This paper is a personal
reflection of what I have learned about the globalization of business innovation and
entrepreneurship, being a global manager, and the skills and competencies I will further need to
develop to become an effective global manager.
Globalization of Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Karlsson et al., (2015) explain that the current wave of globalization has been driven by
large manufacturing companies to get control over sources for raw materials and increase sales
through foreign direct investments (FDIs). Globalization of business innovation and
entrepreneurship has enhanced my knowledge through the understanding that businesses have
been able to overcome country-to-country tariffs and other trade impediments. Goods and
products have been designed to meet customer preferences in various countries, thus improving
economic performance, scale economies, and business innovation in globalization. Moreover,

my research and experience have helped me grow the understanding that global economic
performance is directly connected to distributed business innovation and the rapidly emerging
growth of entrepreneurial ventures around the world.
The concept of entrepreneurship has been deeply rooted in my mind through the study of
induction and fostering of new industries’ emergence. The current wave of globalization in
entrepreneurship and business innovation demonstrates an intimate connect...
