According to experts, international companies tend to be local. That means that it is not possible for an organization with branches in the US, Europe, and China to manage the one-size-fits-all operation. The management of a company can be affected by government regulation, talent pool, and cultural practices. In the food processing industry, the list of things to consider will include the consumer’s taste buds.
David McDonald is the president of OSI Group. David says that his company is in an excellent position such that they have an international network, basically with workers from the organization in the office or the branches across the globe. He adds that the company operates in an international operation meaning that they are a large scale company, but work with local management teams. The team is compassionate, and they understand the local culture and tastes well. That is due to the powers of global scale and efficiency together with local solutions.
