Research Meets Management II: The Impact of Rapid Global Expansion on Organizational Culture
Join us on January 26, 2022, for the second instalment of our Research Meets Management webinar series, as we welcome CEIBS Assistant Professor of Management Emily David for an exclusive talk on The Impact of Rapid Global Expansion on Organizational Culture.
About the Webinar
Put yourself in the shoes of the CEO: Your company is doing well and has acquired several new overseas brands following intensive international M&A activities. With your new global footprint, how do you create a unified corporate identity that respects the traditions of the founding company whilst also embracing the strengths of the acquired companies? During this webinar, Prof. David will draw upon her award-winning case study about the Chinese consumer goods firm Health & Happiness (H&H) International Holdings as she discusses some of the organizational challenges and opportunities facing rapidly expanding companies.
