As emerging markets continue to develop and evolve, even global corporations must think like entrepreneurs on the ground. What your company knows about a particular industry in its local market, however, doesn't guarantee future success in developing economies—all sectors impact one another. To compete successfully, small and large companies, local and global, must document and test their assumptions, experiment to learn what works in different cultures, and adapt their operating model accordingly. Focused on innovation, adaptation, and execution, this program is designed to help country managers, entrepreneurs, and "intrapreneurs" within big companies drive growth and create social value as new markets rapidly emerge.
