January 14, 2013

January activities 1

Using your classroom teams in their online Wiki sites, have students conduct the following studies:

  1. Choose two of the countries listed in the WEF Global Competiveness Index 2012-13 and the Global Innovation Index 2012 studies presented in this month’s research section.  Compare and contrast the data provided and conclusions made.  What does this information suggest for businesses desiring to work in these countries?

On your class discussion forum:

  1. Review this month’s news article on Fresh & Easy.  What went wrong?  What recommendations would you make to Tesco Plc?  Support your argument with data.
