This assessment focuses on developing competition strategy to operate successfully in an emerging market. Students are expected to excel their critical thinking and analytical skills to develop innovative ideas and creative strategies to overcome the liability of foreignness to navigate the institutional context of an emerging market to manoeuvre competition. This group assessment will facilitate students developing the critical skills that are necessary to work effectively and efficiently in a multicultural team. Students are also expected to develop competencies in non-traditional, but increasingly important communication skills and the use of audio-visual tools to engage audience in oral presentation.
Working in your assigned groups, you are required to prepare a group presentation on the competition strategies for your chosen organisation. You need to prepare a 10 minutes presentation by incorporating a summary of product-market attractiveness, entry strategy and suggested competition strategies for your chosen organisation in the particular emerging market. The key issue is to demonstrate cohesiveness among the opportunities and challenges that are identified in the emerging market, entry strategy (s), organisation’s resources and capabilities and the recommended competition strategies for the senior management of the organisation.
You need to adopt innovative strategies to address the audience in a compelling manner, paying attention to audio quality, lighting quality, sincerity of presentation, clarity of your perspective and overall impact. ALL members of the group are required to spend approximately equal time on camera and PowerPoint.
Please note, given the brevity of the scope of the presentation, you are not expected to simply copy and paste information from your assignments rather need to be creative to present the information.
