Discussion Thread: International Business
Read Hout, Porter, & Rudden’s (1982) article and review the three examples of the companies that were successful in competing globally. Each of the companies had a different approach to executing global strategy. In today’s current global environment, why should a company engage in international business? Using a minimum of five new peer reviewed journal articles, provide examples of companies who were successful in doing this. Is their strategy similar to the Hout, Porter, & Rudden (1982) article? Explain.

Introductory Paragraph: gives an overview and definition of the topic you chose. At the end of the paragraph it gives an idea of how your forum is organized.
Current Trends Paragraph: In this paragraph, you will discuss the themes that you found in the research from the 5 articles related to your topic. This paragraph should be a synthesis of the research and not just a listing of annotated summaries.
Future Research Paragraph: In this paragraph, you will discuss areas of future research by referencing the 5 articles that you identified. The future research areas should be based on the findings of the authors of those articles rather than general ideas you may have.
