Trends in international operations

Como resultado del proyecto Globope, se está editando una publicación que quiere servir de guía a todas las empresas en su internacionalización.

Según se recoge en su introducción, la publicación cubre un hueco en la literatura de gestión empresarial orientada a los procesos de internacionalización en un momento en el que la globalización se extiende no sólo hacia la Europa del Este sino a otras regiones como China o los países NAFTA.

“In the last years, the phenomenon of the globalization has increased because of theEuropean Union growth (new European Eastern Countries have joined to it), openingto the market economy of the Far Eastern countries, for example, China and the requirement of locating production sites to introduce in new trading blocks, for example, NAFTA.

Nowadays, the fragmentation of production processes and the multi-location of activities have gained a great relevance. Companies are internationalizing more and more thanks to value chain configurations that extend beyond national borders. As A result, what are exchanged internationally are productive tasks related to productive operations, more than assets. These changes impact on economies that experiment the process of multi-location and affect in the enterprise in addition to their international projection strategies (Alonso, 2007).

The internationalization process start up is one of the most difficult decisions to take, because of involving a lot of risks not only for multinational companies, but also for SMEs (Small medium enterprises) which resources are limited.

Many SMEs and Business Units of industrial divisions with local success fall down in foreign markets.

These are immersed in the globalization process; many of them are in the initial phase of internationalization of emerging market economies as well as in countries in transition, and need to be prepared for the challenges of new market economies (Szabó, 2002).

Facing the management of a production network and logistic in different countries is a challenge of enormous complexity which require a greater coordination to get optimal levels of quality, flexibility and cost (De Meyer et al, 1989).

This book based on the Globope pretends to fill the gap of literature in the implementation of new offshore production facilities and manufacturing networks (multisite or fragmented) oriented to the operations management. It lets to get an advisory tool for managers and practitioners that are in the process of internationalization of its operations”.
