International Market Solutions delivers cost-effective answers to the challenges of
international market entry and expansion. Whether you are U.S. based and seeking to
establish international markets and/or production sites—or based abroad and seeking
entry into the U.S. market—IMS can apply its unique core competency paradigm to
augment your management talent and put you on the path to reaching your goals—quickly
and cost effectively. An experienced executive management team and an extensive
network of associates provide the skills to effectively implement a globalization
strategy, whether it be via merger and acquisition, international joint venture, or
an expansion of international trade and markets.
Recognize this predicament? It faces many businesses:
The Issue—Finding the resources
Establishing and expanding international business and trade requires a coordinated
and sustained management effort, often including a market feasibility study, an
international market entry strategy, and a supply chain analysis. Many companies
do not immediately have the resources for such strategic plans and activities, or
cannot spare them. The principal resource in tight supply is management talent.
The Dilemma—The result is that profitable opportunities abroad are not acted upon
Opportunities for export, sourcing, and investment abroad are increasing exponentially
as global expansion accelerates, and the global economy becomes progressively more
integrated. But your management is completely committed to solving problems and issues
arising from current operations and markets. The executive and professional skills are
simply not available to meet the tasks required of a new, international management team.
The Solution—Cost effective action through the IMS core competency paradigm
A paradigm is a fancy name for a model, in this case an economic model of how a firm
can expand over time—and a model is basically a structure for solving problems. IMS
offers a structured solution to the above dilemma by augmenting your management capabilities
with eight core competencies that are essential for success in international operations.
These cover the areas of strategic planning, market research, finance, marketing & sales,
plant operations and logistics, legal, international business information technology &
training, and government relations.
