Growth and Internationalization

How to successfully enter a new market and develop internationally?

Do you want to go beyond your borders? Develop your products or services internationally? Successfully integrate an acquisition at 5.000 km? Open a subsidiary or build a Joint Venture in a new market? Find a local distribution network? Structuring a team in a foreign culture?

It’s all in the execution!

In transformation phases, planning is key, but successfully implementing without slowing down the business remains one of the biggest challenges for leaders.
This international growth is one of the high-stakes options available to your company, whether it is medium-sized, SME or ETI. Because developing your turnover or exporting your brand to high-potential markets increases the scope of your business and wins new competitive positions.

Challenges and Risks

But this tremendous lever for growth is also synonymous with complexity. It presents risks and difficulties.
Even stronger if you have been established mainly on national territory until now.
You need to:

  • adapt your offer to local markets and culture;
  • build trusted partnerships;
  • master the language;
  • control operations remotely;
  • recruit the necessary talent locally;
  • working with multicultural teams;
  • know and make good use of the laws of the country,
  • etc.

Interim Management as the proper solution

In order not to waste time and secure your international development projects, interim management makes it possible to set up in a few days’ “local” managers of great confidence, or expert leaders of the target market who know the context well. Associated with the business teams of your company, they will limit the risks and accelerate your plans to set up abroad.

Depending on the specificity of your context, and whatever your type of international project, EIM helps you identify, select, and put in place operational managers, immediately available to manage and optimize your growth projects and reduce risks. They are not only experts in intercultural communication, but experienced entrepreneurs or managers who have become experts in a given culture thanks to their extensive experience in international projects.
