Consider and explain the political, legal and technical environment dimensions facing Hitachi, when referring to the “Internet Exercise: Hitachi Goes Worldwide” on page 60 in the textbook. Complete this assignment by answering the following questions: 1) What kind of products and systems does the firm offer? What are its primary areas of emphasis? 2) In what types of environments does it operate? Is Hitachi primarily interested in developed markets, or is it also pushing into newly emerging markets? 3) Based on what it has been doing over the last two to three years, what do you think Hitachi’s future strategy will be in competing in the environment of international business?
Write a one to two page paper summarizing your findings. The written summary should be double-spaced using 12-point Times New Roman font. You will need to cite your sources of information (at least three) at the end of your paper. Though the paper need not be in APA format, the citations at the end do. One of those three citations may be from the Luthans and Doh textbook, and one citation may come from an online website.
HERE IS THE READING FROM PAGE 60 in TEXTBOOK:
Hitachi products are well known in the United States, as well as in Europe and Asia. However, in an effort to maintain its international momentum, the Japanese MNC is continuing to push forward into new markets, especially emerging markets, while also developing new products. Visit the MNC at its website www.hitachi.com and examine some of the latest developments that are taking place. Begin by reviewing the firm’s current activities in Asia, specifically Hong Kong and Singapore. Then look at how it is doing business in North America.
Finally, read about its European operations. Then answer these three questions: (1) What kinds of prod- ucts and systems does the firm offer? What are its pri- mary areas of emphasis? (2) In what types of environ- ments does it operate? Is Hitachi primarily interested in developed markets, or is it also pushing into newly emerging markets? (3) Based on what it has been doing over the last two to three years, what do you think Hitachi’s future strategy will be in competing in the environment of international business?
