Triggered by powerful events since the beginning of the 20th century, the changes that are taking place in the global economic landscape are indeed significant, profoundly influencing the dynamic between factors that are driving the globalization process. Equally significant will be the nature of changes businesses and governments will need to undertake to serve the emerging opportunities, and to offset the rising tensions.
On one hand the new dynamic is creating a new wave of middle-class consumers, and driving profound innovations in product design, market mechanisms, and value delivery processes, yet on the other hand the spread of global terrorism, internet hacking etc. is increasingly haunting and hampering the trust and goodwill between people across societies and nations.
Often the contradictory demands of driving growth and providing safety to maintain social and political stability will put governments under unprecedented pressures which businesses, global and/or local, have to be increasingly sensitive to. It is hoped that the new requirements will lead to invention of new models of collaboration between business and governments, which progressive organizations must actively seek.
Particularly as the world shrinks and get exposed to higher level of economic and political turbulences, the resulting interactions between different human tendencies and inclinations will have profound impact on interpersonal relationships and ways companies do business across the globe. Significantly more softer elements of leadership will be important and the values and beliefs of the corporation have to be strongly embedded in the decision making architecture of the Global enterprise so that managers closer to where competitive games are played are fully empowered to be able to make quick and informed decisions.
In order to help leaderships of multinational businesses navigate through the evolving turbulence, Partha Ghosh through:
- Tailored executive development programs assist a Global Company’s country heads to step up their roles along multiple dimensions so that future businesses are viewed as truly trusted partners by the various stakeholders in the local environment - customers, local and central governments, NGOs, local and national education systems, while they enable global coordination of Global assets - hard and soft, technologies – elemental and systems, and corporate goodwill within a full range of stake holders worldwide.
- Brainstorming sessions help leadership of organizations think through geopolitical geoeconomic scenarios to design and structure strategic options and new models of collaboration processes, so that the level of readiness and degree of agility to respond to sudden disruptions in exploring and executing “winning moves” are significantly enhanced.
Shri. Ghosh had the great advantage of being equally at home in the cultures of India, Japan and USA. This factor along with his sincerity no doubt, helped him to earn the respect of even Japanese CEOs – and that is not easy.
