Businesses can no longer operate without thinking about existing and sustaining business in a global marketplace. Here is a brief, yet very important article on global trends that are changing the face of the world:
Six Global Trends (http://www.ey.com/GL/en/Issues/Business-environment/Six-global-trends-shaping-the-business-world)
Select a business organization or country for which you are familiar and discuss how that company is working within one of the global trends in response to one of the three drivers of change. What has that organization done well/poorly to deal with the drivers of change (1. demographic shifts; 2. reshaping global power structure; and 3. disruptive technology).
Note: Disruptive innovation defined: Clayton Christensen coined the phrase disruptive innovation and has written several books for which he has received recognition. A disruptive innovation is instrumental in creating new markets and adding value to a product or service that leads to a disruption of an existing market or displacement of an existing technology. For example, some of you remember records, and then 8-tracks came along, then CD’s and MP3 players.
In responding, you do not need to provide definitions but you do need to support your reasoning, which can be done by using material from the text, the article or an outside source. Be sure to cite and reference your sources.
