Reviews and Testimonials

This book makes us understand global marketing's transcultural contexts and shows how to determine whether “offerings” for consumption need to be imagined in fresh and innovative ways. This book makes us think about innovation in every level of corporate life, in a variety of forms, and how we need the government-university-industry collaboration in every level of business organizations. I highly recommend this book. It shows new ways to execute global marketing and explains how different countries need to understand these new methods.
